Ever look at this cost? OR IS IT ALL ABOUT US?
flip this coin:
What has been the economic cost of the Iraq war for Iraq? Several studies have dealt with the war's cost to Americans, but few have studied the other side.
The loss of human life has always been evident. Recently, the United Nations estimated that 100 Iraqis were dying each day, on average, as a result of the war. Other observers, like The Lancet, the British medical journal, have put the death toll as much as five times higher, amounting to the implied loss of 2 percent of Iraq's population since the invasion in March 2003.
