The Eight Trillion Dollar War
October 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
At the beginning of September, The Cost of War Project at Brown University released its report showing that the costs of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the other post-9/11 wars was a staggering $8 Trillion dollars. And these trillions of dollars are only the extra money the U.S. has paid specifically for those wars. For the most part they do not include the huge Pentagon base budget that pays for everything except for actually fighting these wars. In addition, the report states that over 900,000 people were killed in our post-9/11 wars.
Join us on October 5 to hear Professor Heidi Peltier present the main findings of this report. She will give us a rundown of the various categories of expenses spent conducing these wars over these 20 years and the significance of these enormous numbers.
