Found this interesting!
Except no one died from the stimulus. Not a single life was lost. And I very very much doubt these numbers. The stimulus might have been more expensive then the initial invasion..but I doubt these numbers include the cost of us staying in Iraq for the next 10 years or more or the entire costs for the past 7 years now is it?
Edit: One last things the stimulus did not cost us that the war did....International relations and political good will over seas. Was that cost factored in? I think not.
* Total deaths: Between 110,663 and 119,380 * Coalition deaths: 4,712 * U.S. deaths: 4,394 * U.S. wounded: 31,768 * U.S. deaths as a percentage of coalition deaths: 93.25 percent * Iraqi Security Force deaths: At least 9,451 * Total coalition and ISF deaths: At least 14,163 * Iraqi civilian deaths: Between 96,037 and 104,7542 * Non-Iraqi contractor deaths: At least 463 * Internally displaced persons: 2.6 million * Refugees: 1.9 million
* Cost of Operation Iraqi Freedom: $748.2 billion * Projected total cost of veterans’ health care and disability: $422 billion to $717 billion
Oh thank you for that, I forgot the costs of the Iraq War wounded. That will cost for the rest of their lives.
Guess the stimulus doesn't really cost more. Unless you put no value on the lives that have been lost or permentantly altered and requiring care.
