Running Cost of the War in Iraq

Want to know the real costs of the War in Iraq? Don't ask the Bushies. Remember, they promised it would be under $2 Billion. Oops, they're bad. If you want the real numbers, check out the National Priorities Project site. They have a constant running total, along with the effective costs to other programs like education.

Let's see, we can't afford to maintain the effort to rebuild the American gulf, but we can manage to spend billions more to conduct a war in Iraq? Hmmm. What's wrong with this picture?

Thanks to Howard Hoskins for passing on this website!
