2005 - $105 Billion in U.S. Military Spending for Iraq/Afghanistan
This is one of the main reasons I am against the war in Iraq (yes, I realize that some of this money is for Afghanistan)
This is just "emergency" funding (outside of the Federal Budget), which doesn't include the "normal" military budget, meaning ALL OF THIS MONEY IS DUE TO BUSH'S INVASION OF IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.
The Bush administration plans to announce as early as Tuesday that it will seek about $80 billion in new funding for military operations this year in Iraq and Afghanistan, administration and congressional sources said on Monday.
The new supplemental budget request would come on top of the $25 billion in emergency spending already approved for the current fiscal year, pushing total 2005 funding for military operations and equipment close to a record $105 billion.
