$505 is not real value.
It is disclosed that NOW we spend $12b/month = $140B/year.
Multiply that by 5 and that is over $505B.
When the war started, it was disclosed that we were spending ALMOST $2B/day! So, someone is lying heavily. I assume the cost of the munition is not included or something like that. I can bet anything that more than $1T has gone into this damn war and that way more than 4000 American soldiers have been lost.
