I’ve seen estimates that the war in Iraq has cost so far $160,000,000,000 US
Imagine what you could buy with that kind of money
And you could irrigate 160,000,000 acres of land or You could buy a small home for every family in Iraq.
Every Casualty cost $32,000,000 (Admittedly you would have got more casualties per buck using conventional weapons - World War II only cost about $1,000,000 per casualty)
Still if the US can keep Iraq they will get a bargain – But they’re giving it back?
Well I guess they will get the money back by selling re runs of “I Love Lucy” and “My Three Sons”
