How much will our wars cost?

A new report out of Brown University estimates that the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq--together with the counterinsurgency efforts in Pakistan--will, all told, cost $4 trillion and leave 225,000 dead, both civilians and soldiers.

Basically the population of Reno, Nevada has been killed in the wars. Despite much posturing by the Obama Administration, the wars aren't going to end anytime soon. Plus we now have Libya and potentially Iran.
