not for the uncool

The United States spends $20.2 billion annually on air conditioning for troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan — more than NASA's entire budget, NPR reported.

In fact, the same amount of money that keeps soldiers cool is the amount the G-8 has committed to helping the fledgling democracies in Tunisia and Egypt...

"Soldiers", huh? So Joe Private gets to kick back on the base and pound brewskis while while the drone handlers, the mercs private contractors and Cheneyburton are out there sweating the real work?
