That would constitute paying off over two thirds of the national debt at present, but is quite acceptable to me as a start

My understanding is that the Afghan/Iraq/Pakistan wars have cost about 3-4 Trillion whereas total US debt is about $14 Trillion so we are talking, at max, of c. 25% of total debt.

A reasonable start IMO.
