Cost of the War in Iraq
story in the Chicago Sun-Times, the war in Iraq has
cost $130 billion to date (per the Office of Management
and Budget). Given that we invaded Iraq 20
March 2003, that comes
to 656 days since the invasion, which in turn equals
$198,730,732 per day.
In other words, the total amount committed by the US government
to date for tsunami relief -- $350,000,000 equals
42.27 hours of the cost of the war in Iraq. Just to put
things in perspective.
