How America Blew $7 Trillion On 80 Wars Since 9/11

May 27, 2019

The United States has been at war in the Middle East for 18 years. We are fighting a shadow war called Operation Enduring Freedom (Operation Freedom’s Sentinel) in 80 different countries. These wars are being fought over oil resources and millions of people have died. The US has impoverished it’s citizens by spending $7 trillion dollars on war when that money is desperately needed at home in America. 1 out of 6 Americans lives in poverty and half the country can’t afford a $500 emergency. Veterans are committing suicide in record numbers and there are 500,000 homeless Americans living on the streets. These wars have brought nothing but death and destruction to the world, and it’s time to end them. They are authorized by a bill called the AUMF (Authorization for the Use of Military Force). End the AUMF, and all of these wars become illegal.
