    Yes you read right. The US spent $300 million A DAY for 20 years in Afghanistan.

    Wow just wow! :eek:

    Just let that sink in.

    All for nothing as the Taliban swept back into power.

    That is a STUNNING waste of money for a nation that cannot provide a national health service for its people.

    $110bn for war but not a cent to solve their health industry.

    20 x 365 = 7300 days

    $300m dollars a day x 7300 = $2.19Trillion

    No big bus needed!

    It makes HS2 seem almost half reasonable.
