'US huge war costs exclude injured'

Although a new study has doubled the US war costs, it does not account for the enormous subsequent expenses for the injured troops, a US analyst says.


"The cost of taking care of [the injured troops] … has not really been taken into account seriously, either by economists or by political figures in the United States," historian and investigative journalist Gareth Porter told Press TV on Thursday.

The new study, conducted by the Nobel Prize winner for economics Joseph Stiglitz and Harvard University Professor Linda Bilmes, shows that the long-term costs of the US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq doubles initial estimates, suggesting the revised six-trillion-dollar figure.

The analyst also warned that "the institutional interests of the military itself [is] so enormous that the [US] military is absolutely determined to avoid an end to this war any time soon."

Porter called on the people and the politicians in the United States to take action to make their government bring the wars to an end.

There are no costs to the U.S. government because the top world leaders    work for  the U.S.A.
A strategy in place for the last 10 years at the Pentagon is  overthrowing  governments and  replacing them with   clones.   The leader of Iran was kidnapped in New York last time he was here and replaced with an exact  clone  a   U.S.   government official.  The real leader is in a top secret jail. There are  many U.S. clones now in top position.   The wars are just target practice for our soldiers.
