Those costs do not include the future medical costs of injured soldiers, the countless wrecked lives of US soldiers and the lives of millions of innocent civilians killed in the needless war in Iraq.

staggering, and this is only . . .

the financial cost.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Very interesting to break it down by State by Apportionment

I wish they'd say it that way though.

More policies and projects should be broken down this way.

It would be quite an eye opener to see a full itemized breakdown of appropriations on an apportioned basis every year.

Though, even in this case, I'm sure many people would see the 3k+ personal cost of the war over 9 years, worth the price. Some would probably say that is cheap.

As if dollars are the only cost. They tend to forget about their liberty.

Anti-war Bump: Wars could cost $4 trillion to $6 trillion

Wars could cost $4 trillion to $6 trillion

The authors of the book “The $3 Trillion War” noted in a conference call on Wednesday that when they first released their findings two years ago, the estimates were widely criticized as being too high. Now, the researchers believe they may have been too low.

Joseph Stiglitz, who received the 2000 Nobel Prize for Economics, and Linda Bilmes, a public policy professor at Harvard University, said the number of veterans seeking post-combat medical care and the cost of treating those individuals is about 30 percent higher than they initially estimated. That, combined with increases in the cost of military medical care and the lagging economy, will likely push the true long-term cost of the war over the $4 trillion mark.
