The US has killed 300.000 people in the Bush and Blair initiated “war on terror”. 4 trillion US dollar’s has been spent on “counterterrorism efforts”
These are the findings of a Brown University study. The aim of the scientists was to put a price tag on the U.S. response to 9/11.
The university calls its “Costs of War” study the most comprehensive accounting of the financial and human costs of American counterterrorism efforts. It brings together the work of economists, political scientists, anthropologists and others.
The study says the conflicts have led to the deaths of more than 6,500 U.S. soldiers and an estimated 180,000 civilians. It says 7.4 million people have been displaced and many of the economic costs are buried in multiple budgets and have yet to be counted.
The findings are continually updated and are available at costsofwar.org.
The study doesn’t detail whether the military response to 9/11 saved American lives by reducing the threat of terrorism.
The project is being done by Brown’s Watson Institute for International Studies.

Why do tens of thousands of Americans live in tents?
Why are millions of Americans jobless?
The answer is found in the cities of Baghdad and Kabul.
The money that was supposed to be used to create jobs in America was shifted overseas, and ended up in the pockets of corrupt Iraqis and Afghans. In Washington such “partners for peace” are also called “moderate Muslims”.
The rest of the cash has been shifted from cities like Pennsylvania and Detroit to Beijing and Shanghai.
The fruits of such investments in totalitarian communist China is that the USA has built up a 16 trillion dollar debts. The tax payers in the US has to pay 160 billion dollars a year in just interests, with the interests standing on the record low of one per cent. The cost of administering such a debt is a whooping 500 million US dollars a day.
Funny that the Americans feel that either a semi-Muslim like Barack Obama, or Mormon preacher man Mitt Romney, will be able to bring the US back from the brink of moral and ethical bankruptcy.
Welcome to the age of paving the way for the final Antichrist. For the last man of lawlessness to create order out of chaos, someone must first create chaos. That is a pure and simple logic, understandable even to shall children.
The leading philosophy in Washington is “management by creating chaos”.
