Unbelievable isn't it, what really amazes me about Ukraine is how the so called liberals totally support the war and the death of many because of Muh Russian "aggression".

And if you bring up the state department coup back in 2014 they totally ignore you.

I agree with the point of war being wasteful, but your example is a wee bit exaggerated.

Smart munitions are obscenely expensive. However, I doubt that a conventional 155 round cost even 1% of what you posted.

I have a rather old book about WW 1. At the end of a fairly well done history (written in the 1930s) it was calculated that the war costs would be equal to building a 4 foot tall wall by 2 foot thick from the Swiss border to the English channel made of SOLID GOLD. It was also broken down into how many schools and hospitals it could have created all around the planet for towns/cities over given populations.

War is a racket, but it the way of this world and will never change.

There is an ancient saying; "Truth is the first casualty of war". Today, it clearly would be just as accurate to say "Truth is the first casualty of American diplomacy".

In total, 10,000 155 mm artillery rounds were ordered and the value of the announced deal was about 33 million euros. This puts the cost of one 155 mm shell at around 3.3 thousand euros.

That is $3,585.58 Dollars per round.

Drop in the bucket. Ukraine wastes 8,000 of these shells every day, and will continue to do so until US/NATO doesn't have a single one left.
