240,000 killed and $ 2 trillion US war costs in Afghanistan
According to the Watson Institute, the cost of the US war in Afghanistan since its inception in the fall of 2001 has reached a staggering $ 2.26 trillion. Also during this period, 241 thousand people were killed as a result of this war.
Since invading Afghanistan in 2001, the United States has spent $2.26 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.
