To date, there have been 19422 casualties total in the War in Iraq, 1519 of them American.
The War in Iraq currently Costs the United States $156, 706, 628, 088 - as of this posting.

Instead, we could have paid for 20,757,182 children to attend a year of Head Start.
We could have insured 93,842,383 children for one year.
We could have hired 2,715,922 additional public school teachers for one year.
We could have provided 7,597,289 students four-year scholarships at public universities .
We could have built 1,411,088 additional housing units .
We could have fully funded global anti-hunger efforts for 6 years.
We could have fully funded world-wide AIDS programs for 15 years.
We could have ensured that every child in the world was given basic immunizations for 52 years.
