I won't have computer access for a few days. Please use the blog as a portal, there are some 40 news sources in the sidebar, plus quite a list of good blogs. A good amount of internet resources are further down the column.


Jay Garner says that our forces should be in Iraq for decades. Oddly enough I believe the Plan for A New American Century
says that too. American "force projection" and all.

I wonder what the people of Iraq are going to think about that?


Looks like Mr Bush is up against reality as the fiscal years comes to a close this fall. To prosecute the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan takes money, money that will run out by September 30. To fund these efforts he must ask for a "supplement", remember last years 87 billion shot in the arm? Well, Bush is not going to ask for a supplement before election time, perhaps holding off till January. The Pentagon alone may need 50 Billion dollars for military operations at the present rate of spending.
U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told reporters Tuesday the decision not to request a supplemental rested with the White House. He could not explain why the administration would allow a three-month gap in funding the war on terror, ostensibly its top priority.

Even knee-jerk "Patriots" are sobered by the cost of Bush militarism, a fact that could cost him in the polls this November.
