James Corbett from 2016. The cost of the U.S. “war of terror” overseas could be measured in the absurdly astronomical amounts of money spent on it since its inception over fifteen years ago. But it doesn’t tell the whole story. The real cost is measured in blood, in the countless lives of civilians, and in the lives of young Americans serving as soldiers, sent to the killing floor on behalf of their government. The true cost of the war of terror and its impact on modern society is simply immeasurable.
