Cost of War


The Guardian wrote an article, probably like many of the other news outlets about the recent attack on Syria by President Trump. Whether you agree with his actions or not it happened. I am by no means a fan of Trump but I agree with his actions that the we needed to flex or power a little bit. But……. It could have gone better and destroyed the airport so it could not be used.  I will be concerned about the fallout or retaliation by different groups and if this will lead to another costly war or even World War 3, which I do not think the country is ready for at this time.

Wikipedia claims the cost of 1 Tomahawk Missle is 1.87 Billion. If President Trump used 59 missles at that cost think of how many people you could feed or the health care that the country could pay for at that cost. Protected the country but at 59×1.87 Billion? For one attack? That money could have been used better else where and had better success.  Or just pick a better target you can destroy with fewer resources.
