If this claim is correct, then the U.S.’s war in and occupation of Iraq will soon have cost us about $2 trillion (including projected future costs of veterans’ care and increased interest on the debt). That works out to about $8700 for every man, woman, and child in the US. Did you get your money’s worth?
Another way to look at this number is that $2 trillion is more than eight times Iraq’s GDP. Those two trillion work out to, in round figures, about $50,000 for every single Iraqi. I remain of the opinion that there would have been a better way to spend that money.
