War Costs The US $10,178.86 For Every Iraqi & Afgani

From this article that says the estimated cost of the wars in Iraq and Afganistan will be $570 Billion by the year 2010.

Google says population of Iraq is 26,074,906
Google says population of Afafanistan is 29,928,987

Total = 56,003,893

Divide that total into the $570 Billion it works out to cost $10,178.86 for each and every single man, woman and child in both countries.

Just my fun with math today.

Sure seems there could be more effective use of the money.

Pah, that’s nothing. The war is costing us $18,387,096,774.20 per point the Dallas Cowboys scored in Superbowl XIII. That’s a lot of money!

Seriously, I’m not a fan of the Iraq war, or of President W in general. But let’s stick to actually meaningful statistics, ok?

Funny, I paid almost that, last year in taxes!
