The Costs of War

 
6723 - Number of Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn casualties as confirmed by U.S. Central Command.
 
Six thousand seven hundred twenty-three American soldiers, lost to yet more pointless war.

 3 more dead this week:

 - Army Pvt. Jonathon Michael Dean Hostetter, August 23, 2013 - 20, of Humphreys, Missouri

 - Army Spc. Kenneth Clifford Alvarez, August 23, 2013 - 23, of Santa Maria, California

Another week and another $2 Billion spent in Afghanistan.
 
Total bill to U.S. Taxpayers = $1,468,604,110,382.
 
 
At what point do we raise hell, ladies and gentlemen?
 
At what point do we say "Enough!"
