In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

The Monetary Costs of These Wars of Choice

What has Never been asked nor mentioned is How Much Did We Pay Others, or even in promises made for later, To Join The So Called Coalition Into The Iraq Invasion and Destructive War of Choice, Especially Those Who Sent Few Or No Troops!!!!!

True cost of Afghan, Iraq wars is anyone's guess

August 15, 2011 - When congressional cost-cutters meet later this year to decide on trimming the federal budget, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq could represent juicy targets. But how much do the wars actually cost the U.S. taxpayer?

Nobody really knows.

Yes, Congress has allotted $1.3 trillion for war spending through fiscal year 2011 just to the Defense Department. There are long Pentagon spreadsheets that outline how much of that was spent on personnel, transportation, fuel and other costs. In a recent speech, President Barack Obama assigned the wars a $1 trillion price tag.

But all those numbers are incomplete. Besides what Congress appropriated, the Pentagon spent an additional unknown amount from its $5.2 trillion base budget over that same period. According to a recent Brown University study, the wars and their ripple effects have cost the United States $3.7 trillion, or more than $12,000 per American. read more>>>

And keep in mind the multi billions needed for the next couple of decades for National Security as we Greatly Enhanced the hatreds towards us, not just our government policies, and the kids that survived seek blowback from All their loses!!
