Rethink Afghanistan -The 10 Year Anniversary of a TRILLION DOLLAR War
On October 7, 2010,
the Afghanistan War
will enter its 10th year.
The 2009 documentary film, Rethink Afghanistan, warned of the dangers of a troop increase in Afghanistan. They warned that the war and escalation were not making us safer and were not worth the immense costs. We predicted that:
America’s wars would cost the public $1 trillion.
We passed that mark three months ago.
Our per-troop cost would be higher than $500,000.
In 2010, we are paying $1 million per soldier, per year.
The American people would not be any safer as a result of this war.
Between May 2009 and May 2010, improvised explosive attacks against American forces in Afghanistan doubled.
SHOULDN’T WE RETHINK AFGHANISTAN ?
