Here is something I posted in another thread. I thought it applied here as well. The President is claiming that the "Almighty" is telling us to liberate Iraq. Here was my response:

The President has pledged 15 Billion Dollars to help AIDS in Africa. Without getting into the politics around this issue.....Let's look at what he is pledging to our "GOOD ALLY" Turkey so that we can use the bases for a WAR that the United Nations has not given approval for. Turkey is being offered "26 Billion Dollars" in aid. WE are offering an entire continent 15 Billion in for AIDS and 26 Billion to one country for WAR. The "Almighty" must really want the War or the Almighty must not be speaking loudly enough on AIDS.

the funnier part is Turkey is claiming this 26 Billion is not enough
Turkey is lobbying for an additional 5 Billion,saying 31billion should be "just about the right amount"

One thing that you failed to mention Dreadsox, prob not on purpose, but the supposedly promised $15B for AIDS in Africa? THat's over 10 years.

The poor souls will be lucky to even see a penny of the first $2B of it, inexplicably delayed till next year sometime, with the way things are going now.

Bush.

$31 billion for Turkey so we can fight a war, $2 billion for Africa to stop the AIDS pandemic.

Well, if the "Almighty" had his priorities straight in his conversations with GW this would not have happened. Jesus took up the sword instead of healing the sick right?

I think this paragraph from this coming week's NEWSWEEK says quite a bit with a very short reference to the 15 Billion Dollars. This is where the money is going:

Bush believes in God’s will—and in winning elections with the backing of those who agree with him. As a subaltern in his father’s 1988 campaign, George Bush the Younger assembled his career through contacts with ministers of the then emerging evangelical movement in political life. Now they form the core of the Republican Party, which controls all of the capital for the first time in a half century. Bible-believing Christians are Bush’s strongest backers, and turning them out next year in even greater numbers is the top priority of the president’s political adviser Karl Rove. He is busy tending to the base with pro-life judicial appointments, a proposed ban on human cloning (approved by the House last week) and a $15 billion plan to fight AIDS in Africa, a favorite project of Christian missionaries who want the chance to save souls there as well as beleaguered lives. The base is returning the favor. They are, by far, the strongest supporters of a war—unilateral if need be—to remove Saddam.
