$34 $40 billion Cut From America's Services But $70 Billion More For 9 Months More War!

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Even as Congress brutally cuts vital services to many Americans, basically throwing them to the wolves, they turn around the very next day and shower twice as much money on our futile war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Arrest these traitors!

From Associated Press:
The White House has told Congress to expect requests for about $70 billion in additional funding for the ongoing budget year for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and $18 billion more for hurricane relief, a Senate GOP aide says.

The details of the requests are not finalized but President Bush's budget for 2007, to be submitted next week, will reflect the totals for planning purposes, said the aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Another $2.3 billion to combat avian flu is also expected.

The funding for Iraq is in addition to $50 billion approved in December and should be enough to conduct the war through Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year.
For all the non-math wizzes out there, this means the stupid wars are costing us over $120 a year. This is an amazing amount of money for running after barely armed civilians! More soldiers were blown up today or sniped. Bush was able to gag Cindy Sheehan but she now has five, six, seven more fellow Gold Star Mothers.

The weeping and wailing of these parents has been heavily muffled by huge blood gifts from the dictator who pays them all a pretty penny for losing loved ones and so the heart is softened, the voices stilled by this little pot of gold which is like the end of the rainbow for fiscally stressed families.

Just like the 9/11 families were soothed by a million dollars each.

As I pointed out in this article here, the slashing of funds to Americans won't make a whit of difference in stemming the hemmoraging of red ink. So long as our wrists are slit by war coupled with unfair tax cuts to the rich, this deadly bleeding will accelerate. And the GOP plan is to pretend we have no more funds for Americans and that good Americans should quielty die in some out of the way place so the fat, treasonous, corrupt pigs can continue feasting on the corpse that was America.
