The Philippine Senators Wanted Billions

Comment from a reader on Senators Who Kicked Out Bases Wanted Cash: Yep if they wanted to they would have paid the bribe. But how much was the cash wanted! Billions! Even the Americans don’t have that much cash to waste. 

From the Bugle: Billions is chump change. Hundreds of billions were poured into Iraq with zero accountability. The Americans would have happily paid billions to keep their bases in the Philippines. They lost billions in infrastructure giving them back. It cost billions in logistics moving to Guam and Japan. Sorry guys but you can't simplify the base negotiations into the bribes you pay to the traffic enforcer when you run a red light.
