V-I Day: Coming Soon Courtesy of Your Tax Dollars

$20 million.

That's how much it costs to celebrate the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Well, not really. Projected cost is higher - that's just for the military's participation in DC events. Our Congressional representatives approved its use in 2006; alas that's not going to happen so they rolled over the appropriation to the 2007 military spending bill.

Yahoo! Now if we could just get those pesky natives to understand the beauty of our occupations, we could spend the dough.
