Actual economic cost of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars estimated to be $1.6 trillion, about double what the Bush Administration has requested. The study is disputed by the White House and I wish that the Republican members of that committee were given a chance to go over the report before its release…however, I hadn’t thought about the interests payments ($550 bil) that had to be made on the war spending–our government will have to pay interest on its debt. Future costs are estimated at $3.5 trillion, which comes out to $46,400 per family of four in our country.
