All the money the war pigs have made should be taken away from them...
....and given to the soldiers and their families.

2. Good idea, but how to implement it?
Once they stash their loot in the Cayman Islands, it begins to distance itself from the actual event of pilfering and takes on a legitimacy of its own. When Al Capone invested his bootlegging money in real estate and other things, it was harder to yank his ill-gotten gains away from him.

The only way I can see to do it is to nationalize the defense industry. No more Lockheed-Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics making money off the government; their divisions making weaponry would be owned by the government. Once you cut off the profit incentive to bellicose war-mongering, those kind of people will have to go elsewhere to make a buck.

5. All their bank accounts should be frozen and
then allocated to replace some of the billions of dollars that came up missing in Iraq. Criminal charges should be included in the deliberations.
