How much does it cost to prop up a military dictatorship?
Well in the case of Egypt it appears to be about $2 billion of year, most of it to the military.

1. How much did Rummy say on 9/10/01 the Pentagon can't account for - $1.3 trillion?
Yah, about that much for Americans - maybe double that a decade later.
