Wasteful money

President Bush thinks there is no end to the amount of money we can spend to keep the Iraq and Afghan wars going. Now he wants another $82 billion more. We already spent billions and billions on this no-win war and we will end up with our tail betwen our legs, the same as we did with Vietnam. We will be paying and paying for our poor troops and their families that had suffered because of this war for years and years to come. The only ones getting rich are the ones supplying the goods to keep this war going and the U.S. contractors to rebuild the places we destroyed.

I love this U.S. and am proud to be an American, but cannot condone the policies when our own people will suffer due to insufficient funds to support U.S. programs.
