Another week and another two billion dollars spent in Afghanistan.
Total bill to US taxpayers:
Number of "Enduring Freedom", "Operation Iraqi Freedom" and "Operation New Dawn" casualties as confirmed by US Central Command:
That's 6,706 soldiers--men and women from our nation.
And two more dead this week:
--Marine Lance Corporal Benjamin Tuttle, July 14, 2013--19 years old and from Gentry, Arkansas
--Army Staff Sergeant Sonny C. Zimmerman, July 16, 2013--25 years old of Waynesfield, Ohio.
All of which begs the question---at what point are we going to end this pointless, extremely costly and utterly unnecessary insanity?
