An update on the price of the Libyan conflict. From CNN Money:
With the tab already running into the hundreds of millions of dollars, the U.S. military intervention in Libya has sparked a debate over funding.
To date, the United States has spent some $225 million firing Tomahawk missiles, according to CNN estimates based on U.S. Navy figures.
The cost could reach up to $800 million to fully establish the no-fly zone and another $100 million a week to maintain it going forward, said Zack Cooper, a senior analyst for the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments.
In defense of the national interest, fine. More than fine. But to satisfy the dubious arguments of the liberal interventionists?!
Hell no, our dollars shouldn’t go.
