Total bull****, we've spend 3-4 trillion on wars in the last decade.

Direct costs, VA, pensions, rebuilding efforts, interest costs, etc.

Not to mention, the he bulk of the increase in deficit over the last decade is due to increased defense spending.

$400 bn/yr in DoD budget (above 2000 spending)
$300 bn/yr in VA, pensions, interest, etc from effects of those wars.
