    It's very expensive to conduct a war. It has costs in terms of short- and long-term preparedness. Of course, the Bush administration does largely seem to be getting around the problem of the dilemma of current readiness vrs. future procurement by just increasing the budget and doing both.

    So we'll pass $450 billion this year, with hundreds of billions in unfunded liabilities (such as future health care for soldiers). In the end this war will easily cost us a couple trillion, on the low end.

    Zoom!

    Does this mean we'll begin to see better results?

    Wow.

    I'd be too frightened to look at that.

    Haliburton is no joke.
