Given the continuing North Atlantic (US and Europe) financial crisis, this website puts one way of spending money in perspective.
Iraq has cost over the US $800 billion so far. It will be interesting to see what the final bill will be by the time they leave at the end of the year.
The war is "won" apparently, but Iraqis are still dying at the rate of over 200 per month. This is no longer reported in the MSM. It's not news.
It would be a fascinating exercise to post the same figures for Australia, and to break it down state by state and city by city.
By 2007, Iraq had already cost us more than $3 billion.
That was four years ago, and we've had Afghanistan since then.
