Exclamation Iraq and Afghan costs 'to double'

The costs of military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq this year are likely to almost double to 3.297bn, a committee of MPs has warned.

The Commons defence committee said operational costs for this financial year were now forecast to reach 3.297bn - a 94% increase on last year.

This included a 72% rise in spending on Iraq to 1.648bn, despite ongoing falls in troop numbers.

Last year's total spending on the two conflicts was 1.698bn.

The cost of the Afghan conflict would rise 122% to 1.649bn this year, the MPs said.

I think this is disgusting. I hate the government for their policies in recent years. Most of you around here know I'm against the war in Iraq.

The funny thing is that Chairman James Arbuthnot said:

"Few people will object to the investment being made in better facilities and equipment for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan."

He fails to note that we were against occupation in the 1st place

Hey guys I received an infraction:

"Dear hks786,

You have received an infraction at BimmerPost - BMW Forums.

Reason: Thread Posted in the wrong Forum"


I'm confused, this is the Politics/religion section right?
