How much will our wars cost? Report says $4 trillion.

A new report out of Brown University estimates that the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq--together with the counterinsurgency efforts in Pakistan--will, all told, cost $4 trillion and leave 225,000 dead, both civilians and soldiers.

The group of economists, anthropologists, lawyers, humanitarian personnel, and political scientists involved in the project estimated that the cost of caring for the veterans injured in the wars will reach $1 trillion in 30 or 40 years. In estimating the $4 trillion total, they did not take into account the $5.3 billion in reconstruction spending the government has promised Afghanistan, state and local contributions to veteran care, interest payments on war debt, or the costs of Medicare for veterans when they reach 65.

The Congressional Budget Office, meanwhile, has assessed the federal price tag for the wars at $1.8 trillion through 2021. The report says that is a gross underestimate, predicting that the government has already paid $2.3 trillion to $2.7 trillion.

There is more to read if you can stand it. Is it any wonder the world is going to shït?

Think of the changes that could occur if that $4Trillion were spent properly...

Quote:Thank you for giving me a convenient and highly visible location for posting the following:

TO ALL NATURAL BORN AMERICAN CITIZENS

If you have a Social Security Number, you are NOT protected by the Constitution. Rather, you are a ward of the socialist District of Columbia, a beauracratic satellite office of the Vatican.

Your SSN is a MARK, a property tag. Once you take it, you become merely chattel, to be taxed, regulated, fined, levied, and controlled in anyway that your Masters see fit.

Social Security is a CONTRACT between you and the United States of America (a federal corporation, see USC Title 28 3002 (15) (A) (B) ©). By entering into this contract you waive your Constitutional rights and accept in return a kind of lifelong indentured servitude. If you received your SSN as a youth (i.e. under the age of 18) then you were illegally entered into a contract, because as a minor you cannot lawfully be held to a contract, and no adult can enter you into one either because that is the definition of slavery. But it's only illegal if you object, and you can only object if you know you can, and you can only know you can if you spend the time to read the law, every last page of it. But fortunately, we have been afforded shortcuts by Good People who blazed a trail. It's a trail along a steep mountain overgrown by vegetation and thorns, but it is there, if you will be motivated to find it and brave enough to follow it.

Don't believe me? ğck you. I've been researching this longer than you've been reading Zero Hedge, in fact longer than ZH has even been around, and I stand on the shoulders of giants who came long before me to proclaim to all of you that your freedom is merely a beauracratic filing formality.

You want proof? Go through the process and see what happens:

Once you've successfuly rescinded your SSN, that's your proof.

You have nothing to lose but your bondage.

When Bill Cooper told the Feds he ain't part of the herd they (cops) killed him, wasn't the first and won't be the last to stand up for his rights as an individual.
