Oh, Bomb A Country, Part II
by Saab Lofton
"The Senate approved $91 billion in funding for the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan yesterday [May 21st, 2009] ... The no-strings-attached legislation comes as a deep disappointment to progressive members of Congress, as well as to anti-war voters, many of whom hoped the Obama administration would mark a significant break with Bush-style war funding."
