It’s a New World of Perpetual War:
- US has been at war in Afghanistan for 17+ years
- Taliban still holds around half the country
- US has bombing campaigns in 8 countries
- US has troop presence in 177 countries (out of 193 total)
- Main reason given for terrorist attacks is US troop presence
All this for only $2,000 each (that’s $8,000 for a family of four) or $4,500 each when you count indirect costs.
