That’s how much Bush is asking for to carry out the occupation of Iraq.
And according to the FT, because the death toll of American soldiers in Iraq has hit a lull, the Iraq issue is moving down the priority list of voters.
But I’ve got to ask the question: why the fuck does nobody care that the government is spending 400$ million dollars a day over there and not making any progress!?!?
It’s hard to imagine a scenario (other than reality) in which you could throw that amount of money at a problem and actually make the problem worse..
