Cartoon: We Can’t Afford U.S. Institute of Peace With all the Wars

Wuerker Defense USIP Cartoon

In the above cartoon, Politico‘s Matt Wuerker illustrates the funding disparity between the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Institute of Peace.

Despite a budget of only $44 million, a small fraction of the costs of the Tomahawks fired by the U.S. in the first few hours of Operation Odyssey Dawn, there have been calls to eliminate USIP entirely.
