Obama taking 34 warships with him to India

We heard all about the cost of the Iraq war. Bush was blamed for that often by the media. Well tell me how much does it cost to take 34 warships to India?
Is it hypocrisy for the media to overlook the cost of Obama's trip to India?

Obama taking 34 warships with him to India
New Delhi TV reports:

The White House will, of course, stay in Washington but the heart of the famous building will move to India when President Barack Obama lands in Mumbai on Saturday.

Communications set-up, nuclear button, a fleet of limousines and majority of the White House staff will be in India accompanying the President on this three-day visit that will cover Mumbai and Delhi.

He will also be protected by a fleet of 34 warships, including an aircraft carrier, which will patrol the sea lanes off the Mumbai coast during his two-day stay there beginning Saturday. The measure has been taken as Mumbai attack in 2008 took place from the sea.

Arrangements have been put in place for emergency evacuation, if needed.
