The Senate has just approved a bill appropriating another $70 billion for military operations against the people of Afghanistan and Iraq, and another $378 billion for the Pentagon to spend on its other programs of death and destruction.
That's four hundred and forty-eight billion dollars.
The vote was 100-0.
That's one hundred to none.
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have now absorbed more than $500 billion.
That's more than a hundred and sixty-five million dollars for every person killed on September 11, 2001.
And we still don't even know who killed them.
