The cost of bin Laden: $3 trillion over 15 years
The most expensive public enemy in American history died Sunday from two bullets.

As we mark Osama bin Laden's death, what's striking is how much he cost our nation—and how little we've gained from our fight against him. By conservative estimates, bin Laden cost the United States at least $3 trillion over the past 15 years, counting the disruptions he wrought on the domestic economy, the wars and heightened security triggered by the terrorist attacks he engineered, and the direct efforts to hunt him down.

What do we have to show for that tab? Two wars that continue to occupy 150,000 troops and tie up a quarter of our defense budget; a bloated homeland-security apparatus that has at times pushed the bounds of civil liberty; soaring oil prices partially attributable to the global war on bin Laden's terrorist network; and a chunk of our mounting national debt, which threatens to hobble the economy ...

"Actually, I will not be surprised if...the Mossad (& CIA) is (& are) 'LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK' !"--ROSE COHEN

***COULD THIS REALLY & TRUELY BE THE "PROTOCOLS OF ZION"-JEWISH-OSAMA-OBAMA-BANKSTER-GANGSTER-DALEY-CHICAGO-RAHM-EMANUEL CONNECTION & FIASCO ?

**From (JEWESS) ROSE COHEN'S Commentary
Sydney, Australia,
10-17-2002:

"BIN LADEN IS JEWISH...I knew that BIN LADEN was JEWISH (a) long time ago, but...I never mentioned (it) to anyone except my husband. The FACT that BIN LADEN IS JEWISH is KNOWN IN ISRAEL, but the 'FREE' 'DEMOCRATIC' 'PRESS' of ISRAEL will NOT PUBLISH IT, as WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO PROMOTE THE MYTH THAT HE IS (WAS) A 'VILLIAN'.

ACTUALLY, I WILL NOT BE SURPRISED IF...THE MOSSAD (& CIA) IS (& ARE) 'LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK' !...

WE ([OR] SHOULD I SAY THEY ?) THE ("PROTOCOL-OF-ZION") JEWS NEVER BRAG ABOUT WHAT WE DO...THE STRATEGY IS SIMPLE: ATTEMPT TO MAKE OUR ENEMIES SUSPECT EACH OTHER AND THEN

FIGHT IT OUT. IT SAVES US WORK..."--Rense.com

"By conservative estimates, bin Laden cost the United States at least $3 trillion over the past 15 years"

"As of May 6, 2011, the Total Public Debt Outstanding of the United States of America was $14.32 trillion"

Amazing the way they throw out these numbers with such a cavalier attitude.

We are borrowing money from China and producing money out of thin air to fight these {undeclared} wars. But how many of our young men and women {who shouldn’t be there anyway} have died or been injured giving “democracy” to a people who do not understand or want it to begin with? Bring our troops home. We can’t whip the whole Muslim world! We are only producing future jihadist every moment we stay over there. You’d have to look high and low to find anyone who thinks the Vietnam conflict was a good idea, including Vietnam veterans. Unfortunately history will also judge these “wars” the same way. Republicans or Democrats they will both send our children and grandchildren into harm’s way. We ought to wise up...or we could keep drinking the koolaid.
