US spent 2 trillion dollars to remove Taliban from Afghanistan
The US went into Afghanistan to remove the Taliban back in 2001. Over 2,400 soldiers have been killed since then and about 2 trillion dollars have been spent by the US towards the conflict. It's now known as the longest war in the US history. The US State Department has officially cut security funding for Pakistan, saying it will only be restored if Islamabad takes action against the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani Network. The aid suspension may amount to 900 million US dollars.
