RT reports: A colossal $3.7 billion in expenses have been racked up since the campaign began on August 8, 2014 up to August 15 of this year.
President Barack Obama authorized a bombing campaign against the Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIS/ISIL) last year, sending 3,400 American soldiers to Iraq to advise and train Iraqi forces.
Since Operation Inherent Resolve began, the US and its coalition allies say they have conducted a total of over 6,000 airstrikes in the region. Of those strikes, nearly 4,000 have been made in Iraq and nearly 2,500 in Syria.
Pentagon statistics claim those strikes have damaged or destroyed more than 10,000 targets, including tanks, Humvees, staging areas, and oil infrastructure. If the total cost of the campaign to date is calculated based on actual damage, those strikes cost an estimated $400,000 per successful hit.
Pentagon officials maintain that the year-long campaign has had some success, enabling Iraqi forces to reclaim some areas, but strategic cities like Mosul and Ramadi remain under IS control, and the airstrikes have done little to uproot the terror group’s hold in Syria.
The costs involved with the campaign against ISIS come as the Pentagon starts investigating allegations by a Department of Defense whistleblower, that intelligence regarding the success of the campaign had been doctored.
According to the anonymous whistleblower, US Central Command told President Obama that they had the ISIS situation “under control” when in actual fact the situation was apparently far worse than they let on.
Meanwhile there is one group of people who are actually profiting from this fight…. defense contractors are raking in millions in the on going war against ISIS.
