The nation’s top military officer said Wednesday that he expected the Pentagon to ask Congress in the next few months for emergency financing to support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, even though President Obama has pledged to end the Bush administration practice of paying for the conflicts with so-called supplemental funds that are outside the normal Defense Department budget.

The financing would be on top of the $130 billion that Congress authorized for the wars just last month.

LMAO! Oh brother............our government is so out of control. The MI complex is sucking us dry. I love how our government acts like they have a big pile of money in a warehouse somewhere just waiting to be spent. America the most free country in the world...........yeah right.......the American people are some of the most indentured people in the world.

Hey at least the wars are totally justified. At this point it's all too obvious Obama isn't going to pull out. If it comes down to a choice between half assing Afghanistan and sending those 40k troops General McChrystal is asking for, I say lets suck it up and send those troops to give our soldiers a fighting chance and take down one of the most oppressive regimes to women in history. As for Iraq...why are we still there again?
