Pentagon Seeks Another $79 Billion for Afghan War | Already Funded With $526 Billion Including War Fund

Propaganda is now legal in the United states

Well, it’s like I always say, “There’s no real reason to NOT ask for an EXTRA $79 billion for a fake BS war that kills far more civilians than supposed “terrorists”, when you could just ask for another $79 billion for a fake BS war that kills far more civilians that terrorists.”

Actually, I don’t always say that. I just made that up.

Clever. I know…

But, really… if you are already getting $526 billion dollars in taxpayer funds to continue and unnecessary war for the benefit of the rich to the detriment of the citizens, then HOW MUCH MORE do you actually NEED?

I wonder which departments funds the propaganda machine and the government owned media?

Pentagon Seeks Another $79 Billion for Afghan War | Already Funded With $526 Billion

by Jason Ditz

Pentagon officials have submitted a new request for another $79.4 billion for “overseas contingency operations,” essentially to pay for the 2014 fighting of the Afghan War. The request is above and beyond the $526 billion the Pentagon is already seeking for 2014, which was supposed to include the war’s costs.

Propaganda is now legal in the United statesRequests for supplemental war funds are nothing new for the Pentagon, but the latest request comes in the context of a growing budget crisis in Afghanistan, with the 2013 “contingency funds” already burned through as costs continue to soar.

The Pentagon’s estimates for their costs have been much too low, as the “success” that is always supposed to be just around the corner in Afghanistan never pans out, and officials conceded in recent comments that the costs of the war may continue to rise “substantially” going forward.

Officials are bragging that the 2014 request is somewhat less than the 2013 version, but the reality is that with surge troops being withdrawn, the savings were supposed to be significant. Instead, the war continues as an all-consuming sinkhole for tax money, with no end in sight and the Pentagon’s best estimates inevitably falling far short.
