House rejects Iran fund plan !



A House committee has rejected the Bush administration's new initiative to promote democracy in Iran, but it did approve $71 billion in emergency funds intended mostly to finance the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Republican-led House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday granted the administration almost all of the $67 billion it wanted for the wars, but it cut most of the $75 million President George W. Bush had sought for new pro- democracy efforts in Iran, calling the plan poorly justified.
So, now what? We just talk the talk and don't care about the rest?
