What is the true cost of the Afghanistan war?

Via Another Green World in Britain.

Britain is spending tens of billions waging the unjustified war in Afghanistan, with horrific costs in the deaths of thousands of Afghan civilians, and of soldiers sent to kill and be killed. This video, narrated by Tony Benn with music by Brian Eno, dramatically conveys the cost of wars which are opposed by most people in Britain. It ends with a call to join the Antiwar Mass Assembly in Trafalgar Square on 8 October.

The US is spending far more in Afghanistan than Britain too. The populations of both countries overwhelmingly oppose the wars yet the war pigs continue their slaughter and profiteering.
