3 trillion dollar. That’s what the war on terror has cost the US of A until today. I can’t even imagine how much that is, but if nobel prize winner Joseph Sitglitz says so, I bet he ain’t bullshitting. Check the link and google news for the details but you can image that this is going to cost the US population. Those debts will have to be paid at some point, and hell, the US economy isn’t doing all that great as it is already.
It’s ironic that the war that was to stop international terrorism is actually succeeding in fulfilling the goals set out by those who flattened the twin towers in the first place. With their limited budget they managed to set of a chain of events that eventually brought the US to it’s knees economically. At least, that’s what likely to be happening, unless the next in line manages to turn that ship around before it hits that iceberg head on.
I think I hear champagne popping in a cave in Afghanistan somewhere.
