With the military intervention in Libya costing the United States $100 million per day, the American Department of Defense is now doing its best to avoid asking for an emergency funding to cover the troops’ expenses. The cost of the military strikes in Libya is likely to exceed the daily $100 million as the strikes continue and especially that the strikes aiming at imposing a no-fly zone target the capital Tripoli and the whole Libyan coast, which requires more troops and arms, according to a report issued by the Washington-based The Center of Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA).
We can’t keep our own critical programs funded but we sure can fund yet another moronic and pointless war waged on behalf of people who will turn on us the second the first innocent dies at our hands. We are led by a government of morons.
