"The White House is putting out the word that the sheer cost of the war in Afghanistan will be a big reason why President Obama orders a drawdown of US forces in July. The size, and pace, of that withdrawal is up for grabs, of course, and it’s entirely possible that Obama will once again cave in to pressure from the military and withdraw only a token number of troops. But in the Washington Post today, the word is that at nearly $120 billion a year -- it’s just too much." [editor's note: Who cares which reason is used? Get OUT now! - SAT] (05/31/11)
