The cost of US foreign policiy is officially 711 Billion - 43% of the world's total
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_policy_of_the_United_States
This DOESN'T include In 2010, $400 billion of our tax money went toward paying off past war debts; http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2011/07/11/the-true-cost-of-americas-wars/
Then their are another few 100 billion in miscellaneous off-pentagon budged things
"It is essential to also consider Washington’s various other “national security” budgets. That of course includes the costs of Washington’s 16 different intelligence services, the percentage of the annual national debt to pay for past war expenses, Homeland Security, nuclear weapons, additional annual spending requests for Iraq and Afghan wars, military retiree pay and healthcare for vets, NASA, FBI (for its war-related military work), etc. When it’s all included it comes to $1,398 trillion for fiscal 2010, according to the War Resisters League and other sources."
