After the attacks on 9/11, the U.S government has had little problem spending over $6.4 trillion on the War on Terror. For some perspective, the U.S. government's total expenditures last year was $4.4 trillion.
Direct combat has killed over 800,000 people, including 350,000 civilians, and displaced over 37 million people.
