Bomb Supply => Bond Supply

The costs for the war in Iraq are increasing, reports the Washington Post:
"The latest war request would push the total cost of military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and other efforts since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks to $277 billion, according to the CBO. That figure well exceeds the inflation-adjusted $200 billion cost of World War I and is approaching the $350 billion cost of the Korean War, according to Commerce Department figures. "
With the current and projected future U.S. central government deficits, supplying bombs to the military is tightly linked to supplying bonds to the treasury market. Lots of them.
