Follow the Money - UN

Spade Hammer has tallied up the bribes incentives that we're supposedly promising to various countries to get our little war in Iraq going. Bottom line -- $50 billion. Note that this is in addition to whatever the war actually costs.

Memo to the folks getting this baksheesh (especially you Africans!) Don't vote until the check clears. The US is the world's equivalent of the town drunk when it comes to fulfilling commitments. E pluribus unum translates as "I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today."

That's a lot of money. I wonder how much we're going to have to cut taxes to pay for it. Taxes for the rich have already been cut as much as practical; we're going to have to find some other taxes to cut. And we thought Reagan practiced voodoo economics!
