    Great toon – Billions wasted !

    Wont spend millions to help Americans that lost jobs, but will spend billions to kill someone in another country.

    Just think were that National Debt you scream about would be if we weren’t spending $47 million per day on the wars.

    I thought it was much higher Ken, Like $1bln every 5 days? Halliburton’s KBR gets $30 per plate to feed our troops. Average 3 plates per meal twice a day = $180 a day for each. That is only for food.

    Toles’ real Wednesday toon is here: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/tomtoles/

    And this is his Wednesday rant:

    Categorical denial

    You’re either with us or against us. Does that statement make you tingle with righteousness or furrow your brow? Brow furrowing gets you immediately assigned the “against us” camp. A polarized electorate is one manifestation of this type of thinking, though war is a much better one. I spend a lot of time criticizing conservatives, and allowing myself to be considered a liberal, and I guess you could say that I’m contributing to the problem.

    But my version of mushy liberalism is of the mushiest sort. To me it just means following the evidence and trying to figure out the best answers. With conservatives having veered off into ultra-dogmatic cuckooland, that leaves just about all sensible discussion at least vaguely liberal. But the fact of the matter is that despite the brain’s wiring, which has a heavy bias towards categorizing, the real world defies and blurs ALL categories. See if you can think of even a single category that has no ambiguous edges. Here’s my candidate: people who insist on rigid categories, and people who don’t. –Tom Toles

    The US paid for that too.

    Let’s see: the French got their butts beat in Vietnam, and we decided to go in to show them how to win the war. The Soviets were beaten in Afghanistan, so now we’re showing them how to do it right? Why does (American) history keep repeating itself at the cost of so many young lives?
