Iraq: The financial cost

A friend sent me a link to the Cost of War Web site, which features a running total of taxpayer dollars spent on the war in Iraq, as well as information on how that money could have been used: the number of preschoolers who could have been enrolled in Head Start, the number of four-year college scholarships that could have been awarded, and so on.

Pretty sobering stuff -- and mind you, this is just the financial cost. There's no way to quantify the human cost in terms of death and suffering.
