Iraq Costs in Perspective
The Iraq War is costing $12 billion a month. That comes to $444 per Iraqi per month. The per capita income of Iraqis (in 2006) is $125 per month. We could quintuple the income of each and every Iraqi, raise their standards of living to exceed those in Russia or Venezuela, and still save money over what it is costing to kill Iraqis. I'm sure they would be willing to accept a lot less.
