One more cost of war.

April 5, 2008

Speaker Pelosi On Rising Gas Prices and the War in Iraq:

“Think of this: Our troops, our military units in Iraq, are paying about $3.25 a gallon of gas, approximately what we pay in the U.S. – that’s our military units in Iraq – while Iraqis are paying $1.36 a gallon for gas at the pump. This is a raw deal for America’s taxpayers, and it is really hard to explain.”

The country of Iraq has BILLIONS in banks around the world.  Americans are footing the bill to rebuild their country, and fight this pointless war. I know this isn’t news, but it needs to be repeated over and over, as long as people have blinders on.
