The Cost Of War
The thing that's turning me against continued military deployment in Afghanistan is the cost. Here we are spending more than five times the country's GDP each year on the operation. As Matt says, it's time to look at how much we could get for $6.5 billion in bribes rather than $65 billion. I really don't want to be restarting War or Car for Afghanistan anytime soon, but I can see things going in a way where that could end up being a live option.
