If the Kenyan guy had just left it as emergency spending it would have been free. Doggy Style!Through Fiscal Year 2020, the United States federal government has spent or obligated $6.4 trillion dollars on the post-9/11 wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and elsewhere.
I remember when the Kenyan had the arrogance of putting these wars on the budget cycle. Fox News was all over that shit for increasing the deficit.
We laughed at the Russians for getting stuck in the quagmire of Afghanistan and we were so stupid, we got stuck there twice as long. China is doubtlessly laughing at us and has been laughing at us.
