Professor Neta Crawford (Brown University) has just released a study claiming that since 2001 the US taxpayers have wasted more than $5 trillions on the War on Islam (John Hammer, Activist Post, April 18, 2012) aka War on Terror.
Both countries were invaded and occupied for the benefit of the Zionist entity.
After Israel’s defeat in Lebanon in 2006, then US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice came-up with the idea of fulfilling Zionists’ century-old dream of Greater Israel by military regime changes and further break-up of Israel’s enemy countries in the region.
“A strict count of dollars spent on ongoing conflicts “understate the wider budgetary impact of the wars and their long-term implications for US federal and state government spending,” Crawford wrote.
For instance, Crawford cites a $1 trillion price tag for VA costs through 2053 as the agency continues to add younger veterans seeking care despite a dip in overall veteran population.
The VA had not anticipated the number nor the complexity of the new veterans’ medical needs, the report stated, alluding to combinations of traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and complex blast injuries such as amputations, which were less survivable in earlier conflicts and require expensive lifetime care.
“The expenditures noted on government ledgers are necessary to apprehend, even as they are so large as to be almost incomprehensible,” she wrote.
The Pentagon has requested $66 billion to continue its military aggression in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria the next year budget, according to the report.
The study doesn’t include the human tragedy as result of America’s proxy wars for Israel. In Afghanistan and Iraq over 7,000 US troops dead, 52,000 wounded in action; over 1.3 million of Iraqis including 500,000 children dead, who wouldn’t otherwise be, 4 million displaced and made homeless, etc.
The study coincides with the 15th anniversary of September 11 terrorism, with 10,000 US troops still in Afghanistan, 15 years after the US invasion of that country, and an estimated 6,000 in Iraq. Hundreds more special operations forces have been deployed to Syria, where the US is fighting to bring an anti-Iran regime change.
