Go Figure

"The Australian Defence Force has spent $252 million on aid in Afghanistan over the past 4 years - but only $37 million of that money has gone into actual projects such as schools, hospitals, clinics and wells. And the $37 million that was spent directly on such projects included more than $6 million used to build and maintain patrol bases and other military and security facilities used by the Afghan forces or shared with them." (Military spends $215m to give $37m in aid to Afghanistan, Brendan Nicholson, The Australian, 8/3/11)
