THE U.S. HAS SPENT $2.313 TRILLION ON WAR IN AFGHANISTAN SINCE 2001

Watson Institute | August 2021

Since invading Afghanistan in 2001, the United States has spent $2.313 trillion on the war, which includes operations in both Afghanistan and Pakistan. Note that this total does not include funds that the United States government is obligated to spend on lifetime care for American veterans of this war, nor does it include future interest payments on money borrowed to fund the war. This $2.313 trillion spent on Afghanistan is a portion of the total estimated cost of the post-9/11 wars.

The Costs of War Project also estimates that 241,000 people have died as a direct result of this war. These figures do not include deaths caused by disease, loss of access to food, water, infrastructure, and/or other indirect consequences of the war.

The figures for Afghanistan are part of the larger costs of the U.S. post-9/11 wars, which extend to Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and elsewhere. The numbers are approximations based on the reporting of several data sources.

  1. “nor does it include future interest payments on money borrowed to fund the war. This $2.313 trillion spent on Afghanistan is a portion of the total estimated cost of the post-9/11 wars”

    Lord Rothschild in “The City of London” England, will be extremely happy with that interest income. Just like your local Bank Manager, he loves people who are indebted to him, because he has assured income from this Afghanistanian debacle for the last 20 years, and many years to come.
    It’s no wonder that Governments are dependent on “The Moneylenders”, is it?

    • Of course, the American TAX PAYERS pay for everything, while America’s TAX EVADERS pay nothing towards the day to day running of the USA.

  3. I knew this was coming…

    According to Gov. Ralph Northam (D-VA), the Biden administration has flown about 14,000 Afghans to Dulles after having evacuated them from Afghanistan in the quest to resettle tens of thousands, and potentially hundreds of thousands, across the U.S.

    Some mass migration advocates want 1.2 million Afghans resettled in the U.S.

    Dulles has become such a major hub for refugee resettlement that the Biden administration is setting up a mass coronavirus vaccination site at the airport. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, though, is set to also be opened as a second resettlement hub, Northam said.

    After arriving in Dulles, Afghans are being resettled in Florida, Texas, Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Arizona, among other states like New Jersey and New York. Virginia, also, is resettling Afghans.

  4. “THE U.S. HAS SPENT $2.313 TRILLION ON WAR IN AFGHANISTAN SINCE 2001”

    If the USA Government got that information from the Pentagon, How do they know it is accurate? They still haven’t located the Trillions of dollars that were announced as “LOST” on the day prior to “9/11″…..

    How can the American people believe ANYTHING their government tells them?….WAKE UP AMERICA!
