Java & Internet Glossary

When I look back over the decades, I cringe most at the times when I was in the presence of a guy I was terribly keen on who had no interest in me or who no longer had any interest in me.

Most Americans refuse to believe they killed very many people in Afghanistan or Iraq. Let’s give that a laugh test. Are weapons more or less efficient than they were in WWII (World War II) ? There has been a ton of research improving them, but for argument sake, let us presume today’s weapons are no more efficient (i.e. number of people you can kill per dollar is no higher). In 2011 dollars, WWII cost $4,104 billion. As of 2010 Iraq had officially cost $784 billion and Afghanistan $321 billion in 2011 dollars. In WWII, Americans killed 3 million Japanese. Of course they also killed Nazis in Europe. The cost to kill each Japanese citizen was thus less than $1,400 in 2011 dollars. At $1,400 a head, the budget for the Afghan and Iraq wars should have been sufficient to kill at least 790,000 people. Consider though that compared with Japan, Afghanistan and Iraq were all but unarmed. Neither Afghanistan nor Iraq had any means to shoot down bombers or sink ships. Their tanks were wiped out the first day. It was basically shooting fish in a barrel. That should make it much easier/cheaper to kill each person, meaning far more people than 790,000 should have been killed for that budget. Also consider that Canada, Britain, NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) and the coalition of the coerced also contributed to the budget for killing people. And finally the Americans used an extremely cheap way to kill Afghans at the beginning of the war they did not have available in the war with Japan. They simply blocked food aid from getting into Afghanistan during a weather-related famine.
