--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
America has been in Iraq for five years - longer than it spent in either World War #1 or #2.

Daily military operations (not counting, for example, future care of wounded) have already cost more than 12 years in Vietnam, and twice as much as the Korean war.

America is spending $16bn a month on running costs alone (ie on top of the regular expenses of the Department of Defence) in Iraq and Afghanistan; that is the entire annual budget of the UN.
