Last year, the price of gasoline in the United States topped the $4 per gallon mark.

This year in Afghanistan, the price has topped $400.

The stunning revelation emerged Thursday in a report from the Pentagon to House officials. The information conveyed offers new insight into a recent report by the Congressional Research Service, which found that the US spends $1 million per year for each servicemember on the ground in Afghanistan.

Why so much? The cost includes shipping, which sometimes includes the pricetag of a helicopter flight. Sending fuel by helicopter is woefully inefficient, because it uses up almost as much fuel as it carries.

I don't know about anyone else but I am tired of making the Rich richer! Making money was what the Iraq war was all about for the Republicans - I guess making money in Afghanistan is what it is all about for the Democrats.

We need Real leaders who care about Americans again and not Corporations. This is all just Bu#!
