'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Measuring the cost of war in FRNs barely scratches the surface

What about the costs to the "enemies"?
What is unseen - that is, what could those FRNs have funded instead of killing and destruction?
And last but not least, what of the human costs - the families on both sides who lose loved ones, and the soldiers who return foverever crippled in body and spirit?

Thanks!

Was informative for learning a fact about the wars. Does anybody think that that number is an overestimate or underestimate of the amount of money spent since 2001 until today? Like, do you think that's a conservative estimate or anything? I really don't know how the money is calculated.

I feel like this number is

I feel like this number is really low. Haven't "Overseas Operations" cost us something like $300bn every year?
