That's just depressing.

On multiple levels, it's depressing.

"U.S. Military Spends More On A/C Than NASA’s Entire Budget"

Don't get me wrong, I don't begrudge our soldiers in the Middle East some A/C--I imagine it's necessary for their sanity. 

But "Afghanistan is where empires go to die" just got even more depressing to me when I realized they built our moon base on the wrong planet.

I don't know about now, but back in the 90s a/c was used to keep the computer equipment from dying. If you think the cost of cooling is costly, tote up the bill for computer equipment dying wholesale.

But I agree - the mission in Afghanistan was to me always questionable once we tossed the Taliban out of Kabul. Mission is long long accomplished time to come home.
