Analysts Expect Long-Term, Costly U.S. Campaign in Afghanistan
As the Obama administration expands U.S. involvement in Afghanistan, military experts are warning that the United States is taking on security and political commitments that will last at least a decade and a cost that will probably eclipse that of the Iraq war.

Since the invasion of Afghanistan eight years ago, the United States has spent $223 billion on war-related funding for that country, according to the Congressional Research Service. Aid expenditures, excluding the cost of combat operations, have grown exponentially, from $982 million in 2003 to $9.3 billion last year.

The costs are almost certain to keep growing. The Obama administration is in the process of overhauling the U.S. approach to Afghanistan, putting its focus on long-term security, economic sustainability and development. That approach is also likely to require deployment of more American military personnel, at the very ...

I think you got that wrong fuzz, the only unjust war was the war in iraq. It was orchestrated by bush. The afghan war was started after 9/11. That is where the taliban training camps were located. The sermon audio commentator asked the question: what do we have to gain by a long drawn-out costly conflict? I say we have little choice. To quit now would invite a resurrgence in the taliban. I think we should broaden the war to include pakistan.

NO WAR IS JUST! ! !

Especially when LIES and more LIES were used to "justify" it.

What's the matter Jim, afraid of Muslims? Why aren't you afraid of your own government who habitually lies to you and tell you "peace, peace, when THERE IS NO PEACE."

Killing people who are muslims will not usher in the second coming! What's the matter with you? GOO Rugh has you brainwashed or what?

Repent!

The Afghanistan War is a just war. One can certainly fault Bush's handling of Iraq, Iran, and North Korea. However, this was a necessary response to 9/11 and positive attack on Islamic terrorism.

So, as long as Bush and Rumsfeld stayed out of it, the war was successfully carried out. We --probably-- we wouldn't have had so much trouble if the US was more aggressive in nation building at the start of this war.

All wars are costly, some just happen to be necessary in spite of the cost.
