The Co$t of War in Iraq

Ever wonder about America's cost in the War in Iraq in American fatalities and in taxpayer dollars? I have and here it is as of this moment:

US Deaths Officially Acknowledged by the Department of Defense: 2414 w/ 12 pending confirmation.

Cost of War in Taxpayer Dollars: $278,915,340,085 and climbing.

If you're one of the blessed ones and have your family intact this morning, kiss and hug your wife, your husband, your children or your significant other and thank God you're able to see and touch them this morning.

I am sure I can find 2414 people that would gladly trade places with you on your worst day.

God bless our troops.
