Just read in the Washington Post that adding 44,000 troops to our presence in Afghanistan will bring the total annual cost to $100 billion. That's over $3000 per person in a country which has a per capita income of $400/year. I'm thinking of writing a book called "Mother Freakin' Freakonomics" and advocate that we simply pay any Afghan $2000 for bringing in each Taliban corpse. Also, by reducing the number of Taliban in the country, the per capita income will rise...success all around!

My comment, (removed) though supportive, may not further the cause of World Peace. Whistling

How long did it take the USSR to decide they were wasting money fighting in Afghanistan?
The place is like the wild west but with all the appeal of the dark side of the moon.  Win one war at a time  kill everything hostile in Iraq then move on.   Divide and conquor is a recipe for defeat.
