In what way?
It is $80 billion and halfway home to Vietnam. The fresh $80 billion just requsted by President Bush pushes the war costs of Iraq and the amazing shrinking asterisk of Afghanistan (Osama been where?) past the $300 billion mark.
The extimated cost of Vietnam in current dollars was $584 billion, according to the Congressional Research Office. Iraq has already cost more in current dollars than either the Civil War or World War I. It is about to pass tthe Korean war. We are on pace to pass Vietnam in two or three years.
