Editors: William J. Butler
Book Description:
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost the United States in many ways. For the American Armed Forces, the human toll has been profound: as of 2007, 4,578 American soldiers have lost their lives, and 30,205 have been wounded, many of them gravely. The damage to our international reputation at a time when the United States faces grave security challenges all over the world has also been severe. And the full economic costs of the war to the American taxpayers and overall U.S. economy go well beyond even the immense federal budget costs already reported. This book emphasizes how the War on Terror has cost Americans far too much, in terms of lives, dollars and our reputation around the world.
