It’s no secret that one of the biggest causes of our spiraling national debt has to do with the fact that we are fighting a bunch of wars overseas.
These wars are costing us mucho bucks.
The biggest problem with the wars, especially in Afghanistan, is that there is no clear finish line. World War II, we fought until the Germans, Japanese and their allies surrendered. They surrendered, we went home.
Not so much with our current wars. In fact, in Afghanistan, we are fighting next to the government, trying to put down rebel forces.
