Our Choice: Bomb Afghanistan, or Rebuild America

The current war in Afghanistan costs in excess of $48,000 a minute.

Meanwhile, a National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform is talking about cuts to Social Security, Medicare and the home mortgage deduction to address the nation’s growing budget deficit.

The average cost to deploy a soldier to Afghanistan for a year is $1,000,000. Meanwhile, my local school budget came up about $1,000,000 short this year, because sharply reduced federal subsidies to my state resulted in sharply reduced contributions to schools. Not deploying one soldier to Afghanistan would keep it open.
