A mere $500 million will be spent to make us all safe from the Sahara Desert:
The U.S. government will spend $500 million over five years on an expanded program to secure a vast new front in its global war on terrorism: the Sahara Desert.
Critics say the region is not a terrorist zone as some senior U.S. military officers assert. They add that heavy-handed military and financial support that reinforces authoritarian regimes in North and West Africa could fuel radicalism where it scarcely exists.
I wonder which of Bush’s cronies will be the recipients of this huge waste of money.
