    Dollar Cost Averaging

    Since 2001, the United States has spent $2.26 trillion in Afghanistan, the Costs of War Project at Brown University calculates – an investment that has yielded a chaotic, humiliating end to America's longest war.
    There are 38 million Afghaniis.

    That means $59.47 per Afghani over 20 years.

    Not even 3 bucks a year per Afghani.

    Now I realize wages might be a little less in that area of the world but it takes more than that to live in Haiti. It costs more than that for a NY cop to visit Starbucks.

    Maybe that is why the Afghaniis went the Taliban route.

    Now on the opposite side of the equation there are roughly ten times the number of Americans than Afghaniis. So that means each American would have to pony up $.30 a year for 20 years to pay for U.S. involvement in protecting Afghaniis from themselves.

    You had to give up a Starbucks coffee twice in 20 years to pay for Afghanistan.

    At that rate we could have financed the war for 500 years and Starbucks would not even notice the loss of revenue.

    As to the weapons left

    They have lots of guns but far fewer targets. Hopefully all those guns will help the next time Russia chooses to colonize them.

    Biden is non compos mentis so there is nothing there to blame. Why do you think Trump put him in charge?

    Bingo!

    We have a winner. I admit my calcs were in error by a factor of 1,000 but thought I would let the post stand to see if anyone was paying attention.

    Give the man a cupie doll!

    But ...since we are only talking fiat I could be off by a light year and it wouldn't make the slightest difference.

    Nothin from nuthin.is a nullity.

    Joe Biden just armed Iran. The Taliban is transferring all the weaponry to Iran so Iran gets to take advantage of the zeros.

    "It can never happen here.” “It won’t get that bad.” “This is America.” Such foolish words. Such blind people. When the country had long passed the point of no return, they still believed that with the next election cycle things would turn around. Moral character and moral fiber were no longer requirements for those who ran for public office, but such ideas were openly mocked.”

    "Joe Biden just armed Iran"
    Watch what you buy on those GSA Auctions. Might have to ship from Kabul. Hunter will likely take over surplus sales.
