What’s a few dollars when you’re banishing evil from the world? 

Let this website help you harness the power of hard numbers when you ungratefully bitch and moan about the war in Iraq.

By last count, we (that’s you and me and every other taxpayer) have spent a total of some $123 billion on the war. That breaks down to about $437 per American, which reminds me of that $300 Bush tax cut check I have lying around here somewhere….

Costofwar.com also poignantly depicts some of the ways in which that money might have been spent elsewhere.

(Most distressing of all is that the existence of the site provides clear evidence of an Al Qaeda cell operating within our borders.)
