$87 billion

$87 billion for Iraq & Afghanistan. Can we build build “safe, stable, and self-governing societies” at home before we turn our sights abroad?

What really irked me about last night’s speech was comparing the United States’ invasion and rebuilding of Iraq and Afghanistan to the rebuilding of Germany and Japan after World War II.

In related news, I paid $2.45 a gallon for my turbocharged (92 octane needed) 29 mpg Jetta yesterday.
