DB2: No, I said they were moot points. Moot is an adjective meaning open to discussion or debate.

That is the historical meaning of moot, but not the contemporary meaning, where it is generally used to mean 'irrelevant' or 'pointless'.

I also wrote I didn't know how much of the debt was from the wars.

It seems to be in the ballpark of $2.5T: seems to be a popular graphic.

That's probably a low estimate, as it ignores the cost of future VA/medical services.

The point remains unaddressed.
