Bush wil $75 miljard voor oorlog

Recommended Posts


President George W Bush is expected to ask Congress for about $US75 billion ($A126.16 billion) to pay for the war with Iraq, assuming the war will last about 30 days, and to strengthen counterterrorism efforts at home, lawmakers and congressional aides said.


The money measure, which the president planned to describe to congressional leaders he invited to the White House, is dominated by $US62.6 billion ($A105.3 billion) for the Department of Defence. It is based on an assumption that the US-led effort to oust Iraqi President Saddam Hussein takes 30 days of combat, said aides.


The request was also expected to include up to $US3 billion ($A5.05 billion) for domestic security, chiefly for police and other so-called first responders. And it will contain about $US8 billion ($A13.46 billion) for aid to Israel, Afghanistan and other US allies, a down-payment on humanitarian aid for Iraq and for rebuilding the country, and money to increase security for American diplomats.
