Yahoo! News - Bush Requests $81.9B for Iraq, Afghan Wars

President Bush wants 81.9 billion more dollars to fight he wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. At first sight it seems pretty bad. But then you think to yourself, "Well, at least he is still trying to get Bin Laden." Unfortunately, of the $81.9 billion he has requested, $77 billion of it goes straight to Iraq and Afghanistan, with the majority of the $77 billion going to Iraq. That is 94% of what the President is now asking for.

The difference between money going towards Afghanistan, the place where the guy who started the war on terra lives, and Iraq, the place where we had no right to go is staggering. Oh, and something I did forget to bring up, 1 billion dollars for tsunami aid. Hmmmm, so that's the third most important thing in the list of stuff Bush wanted, the horrible world tragedy.

President Bush said he wanted to help countries pursue "the path of democracy and freedom."

This money is not for iraq but for contractors that Chaney used to work for.
