Twenty five billion slam dunk, they'll be throwing roses and the oil will pay for any reconstruction.But Bush chose to borrow the money for Iraq and Afganistan from China.
War Bonds sold to Americans would have been a far better way to finance the War than Bush's idea of becoming China's client.
But borrowing money from commies is right up your and Bush's alley.
Twenty five billion was a classic low ball__congress would have approved far more BUT NOT under emergency funding. BushCo really wanted war with Iraq but the key was "emergency funding" no budget, no accounting, just a fkn unlimited credit card for war.
And they got it!
And then they fkd up what could have been a pretty simple deal.
And they didn't get the oil.
