    A New Perspective on Cost of War ~ War Is A Racket

    A New Perspective on Cost of War


    United States, Britain and the UN-Member nations all went into Afghanistan and Iraq to help save the world. This is how much it cost them to "Ensure safety for the World".

    One Hundred Dollars

    $100 - Most counterfeited money denomination in the world. Keeps the world moving.



    Ten Thousand Dollars

    $10,000 - Enough for a great vacation or to buy a used car. Approximately one year of work for the average human on earth.




    One Million Dollars

    $1,000,000 - Not as big of a pile as you thought, huh? Still this is 92 years of work for the average human on earth.



    One Hundred Million Dollars

    $100,000,000 - Plenty to go around for everyone. Fits nicely on an ISO / Military standard sized pallet.




    $100 Million Dollars = 1 year of work for 3500 average Americans

    It takes 3500 Americans 1 year of work to make $100 Million dollars. The 155 million Americans who worked with earnings in 2005 on average made $28,567 / year.

    In front of the 3500 people is the $100 Million pallet that they all have to work for 1 year to earn.

    Look carefully to see a stack of $1 Million and the 35 average Americans required to earn that $1 Million in 1 year.

    139 Deaths

    Afghanistan Deaths

    UN Countries' Deaths

    Deaths of soldiers from countries that are members of the United Nations and participated in the Iraq & Afghanistan wars.

    This includes soldiers from Australia (2 deaths), Azerbaijan (1), Bulgaria (13), Czech Republic (1), Denmark(7), El Salvador (5), Estonia (2), Fiji (1), Georgia (5), Hungary (1), Italy (33), Kazakhstan (1), Latvia (3),Netherlands (2), Poland (23), Romania (3), Slovakia (4), South Korea (1), Spain (11), Thailand (2), Ukraine(1, Canada (15.
    The monetary cost has not been calculated. $2 billion truck is for comparison.

    "If the United Nations once admits that international disputes can be settled by using force, then we will have destroyed the foundation of the organization and our best hope of establishing a world order." - Dwight D. Eisenhower (WWII General & President of USA)





    British Deaths & War Costs

    Deaths of soldiers from the United Kingdom & money spent on war.

    "If the human race wishes to have a prolonged and indefinite period of material prosperity, they have only got to behave in a peaceful and helpful way toward one another." - Winston Churchill

    As of June, 2010 UK estimates 18 Billion ($31.5B USD) has been spent on wars in Afghanistan & Iraq. The trucks show the money UK spent on wars in Iraq & Afghanistan. Source: The Telegraph

    Afghanistan Deaths

    397 Deaths

    Iraq Deaths -179 Deaths



    USA's Deaths & War Costs

    Not sure what was meant when George Bush said: "Mission Accomplished". This is not it.

    With more then 5x the size of military power of all world's countries combined,

    USA has no problem showing its military power.

    The trucks show the Iraq & Afghanistan war budget in fiscal year 2012.
    The total bill of Iraq war is estimated around $4 Trillion USD ($4 million millions dollars).

    US Government has authorized 1.38 Trillion USD through 2012 for War Budget for Iraq & Afghanistan.

    The real cost of war is much higher, with ~2.6 Trillion estimated additional expenses, including health care for wounded, etc. That is illustrated by the 2x $1.3 Trillion dollars towers.

    There are a also 14342 wounded soldiers, but the wheel-chairs are not shown.

    Note the full-size American Football field on the right & the small truck on the right by cash tower.
    Iraq
    Deaths 4484 Soldiers
    2012 Cost $10.1 Billion USD
    Total Cost $807.4 Billion USD
    Afghanistan
    Deaths 1893 Soldiers
    2012 Cost $111.1 Billion USD
    Total Cost $570.9 Billion USD

    Post War Cost
    2x $1.3 Trillion USD towers.
    This is post-war costs
    estimated by economists.
