During an interview with the National Public Radio recently, the reporter said, “Afghanistan costs American taxpayers $30 billion annually, down from $112 billion in 2010.”

When you add up the costs over 17 years, as well as factor in the collateral costs, estimates range from $5 to $7 trillion.

When you factor in the 4,100 dead American soldiers, along with thousands suffering from PTSD, along with all the missing limbs from IED’s, that war reminds us of Hemingway’s line in his epic book, For Whom The Bell Tolls. “It tolls for thee.”
