$3 Trillion Dollars to Kill Osama, And All We Got Was a Lousy Predator Drone!

How much would you spend to kill Osama? According to this article from Yahoo, estimates range from $3 to $6 trillion dollars, or roughly 15 % of our national debt.

While other costly wars have reaped economic benefits and technological advancements for America, the author states that two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was of little to no benefit economically or technologically. However, he points out that we did develop the predator drone, so there is that.

Our “war on terrorism” has managed to cripple our economy, strip us of civil liberties, as well as heighten fear and hatred based on religion and skin color.In addition, thousands have died fighting 2 unjust wars. What do we have to show for it? Nothing really.

Al-Qaida may have created the cracks in the Amrican Empire. However, it was our own government that widened those cracks into monumental fissures. I fear that no amount of cement will ever close them up.

    Besides a dead Bin Laden we got thousands of other dead idiots . We showed the Islamic World that we are not a nation of soft welfare receiving moma’s boys like the western europeans have become . That we will spend the money and spill the blood to avenge our dead, even if it takes a decade .

    That it was worth it is proved by two facts . The terrorist attacks have gone down . That except for a few hundred Islamic clowns in Britain and some more in Pakistan, the Islamic World reacted with a yawn to Bin Laden’s death .

      Hi Alan! First, I want to thank you for stopping by,as well as for your comments.

      It’s obvious that we are not going to find a middle ground on this, and that’s cool.

      The only thing I would add is this question: Do think that the friends and families of the thousands of soldiers and civilians killed in both wars would agree with you?
