US WARS IN IRAQ + AFGHANISTAN ESTIMATED TO COST $4 TRILLION

leave a comment »

War, what is it good for? If you ask researchers at Brown University, a new study says around $4 trillion down the drain and nearly a quarter of a million lives lost.

Economics, anthropologists, lawyers and researchers at the Ivy League institute have been slaving away at the study which projects the price of the Afghan and Iraq wars to be at around $4 trillion by the time the US wraps up operations overseas. Earlier the Congressional Budget Office released its own numbers, alleging that the cost thorough 2021 would be a mere $1.8 trillion. Brown researchers, however, predict that the US government has already spent at least $2.3 trillion in funds, as the US continues to combat despite already eliminating both Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden.

Additionally, 6,000 US troops and 2,300 contractors have died since September 11, with researchers estimating that another 200,000 will lose their lives as a result of the war by 2021. 137,000 civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq have already perished, and 8 million people have been displaced, says the study.
