WEB Notes: Now before you read any further, relax for a moment. Take a sip of coffee and think to yourself… Terrorism and chaos in the middle east and other parts of the world are at record levels. Meanwhile, the amount of money the United States is dumping in to “stop” terrorism is also at record levels. Now I do not know about you, but in my math book 1+1=2…

It should be as plain as day, the cause of much of this trouble is due to the US funding terror groups in the middle east and we have documented that over and over again.

On another note, I think we have all become numb to the numbers. How much is a trillion dollars? Video footage has been posted in the past to provide some context.

This time however, how long would it take you to count to just 1 trillion, much less 2.8 trillion…

31,709 years.

The U.S. has spent as much as $2.8 trillion on the fight against terrorism since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to a study published Wednesday.

The report from the Washington-based Stimson Center think tank said the figure included spending on the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, in addition to homeland-security efforts and overseas programs. Spending on counterterrorism reached a peak of $260 billion in 2008, accounting for more than a fifth of the government’s discretionary budget.
