What it really Costs

The Case for Neo Isolationism - Global Guerrillas:

The 59 Tomahawks the US fired at Syria (to pound sand at an abandoned air base) will cost ~$75 million to replace.  The cost of fixing the water system in Flint Michigan (yes, it still hasn't been fixed) is pegged at ~$55 million.

Looked at another way...

The US spent ~ $2 trillion ($6 trillion including interest) for an optional and unnecessary war in Iraq. $2 trillion is enough to: build a permanent colony on Mars or rebuild the entire US air and rail system from scratch or...

provide catastrophic health insurance for every American citizen for four years...

paving the way for real healthcare reform.
