The actual cost is somewhere around 4 BILLION dollars
when you allocate the insurance paid by the Gov for the dead US and Iraqi plus hosital costs for the wounded etc.
I mean if you want to talk about wasted money and resources (3,000 dead soldiers), I would be most annoyed by picking a fight with a country under false pretenses and now we are on the hook for 4 BILLION DOLLARS!
It gets even more depressing if you think about what the Government could have done with 4 Billion dollars. Research, infrastructure, schools/education, the biggest water park in the world I could take my new Super Puma down etc, etc.
