New Nobel Record

, , , ,

First tomahawk launched from US missile destroyer in Operation Odyssey Dawn


Barack Obama has now fired more cruise missiles than all other Nobel Peace prize winners combined.



From Abu Muqawama:

A Tomahawk Missile cost $569,000 in FY99, so if my calculations are correct, they cost a little over $736,000 today assuming they are the same make and model. The United States fired 110 missiles yesterday, which adds up to a cost of around $81 million. That’s… about 33 times the amount of money National Public Radio receives in grants each year from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which the House of Representatives… wants to de-fund.

One Feedback on "New Nobel Record"


They told me that, if I voted for McCain, we’d be engaging in yet more “regime change” in the Mideast. And they were right!

(I just wanted to get that in before Dr. Reynolds did).
