Another $80 billion (for now) and at least two more years in Iraq

Bush wants another $80 billion to finance the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the U.S. Army plans to keep 120,000 soldiers in Iraq for at least two more years.

Bush administration officials say the additional funding is the result of continuing high costs incurred battling an unexpectedly strong insurgency in Iraq. Oh—and failing to capitalize on all that Iraqi oil, due to the unexpectedly strong insurgency.
