Ah, the cost of war. There's 500 billion right there. Add the 700 billion we just gave to the financial interests on Wall Street, and the kicked-around 25 billion being discussed for the auto industry. Yes, the auto industry. Don't you know they are a part of the military-industrial complex? General Clark
believes we should bail out the auto industry...primarily so they can keep making Hummers for the army.
