He Did It Again

I don’t know if anyone else caught this, but Biden did it again.In the Vice Presidential debate he said that for the seven years we were in Afghanistan, we only spent what we spend in three weeks in Iraq.He was trying to make the point that we were neglecting the war on terrorism in Afghanistan.His statement didn’t make any sense to me so I did a little research to get a ballpark estimate.Approximately, we have 144,000 US troops in Iraq and 18,000 US troops in Afghanistan.We’re spending about $10 Billion a month in Iraq (according to Biden and others.)Assuming that expeditures are directly related to troop levels, we are spending about $1.25 Billion a month in Afghanistan.Our spending is approximately $105 Billion for seven years in Afghanistan.Biden’s 3 weeks in Iraq equates to $7.5 Billion (75% of $10 Billion.)This error is off by 1,400% !!!!!You can argue with my approximations, but even if some of them are off 50% he still would be off several 100% .He’ not even smarter than a 5th grader!He constantly makes statements of fact that are way off. I don’t know what to believe.He seems like a nice guy, but I think he would embarass himself and America if he was VP or President.
