The Iraq war: Money well spent

BAGHDAD'S FINEST HOUR: Friday, April 9th, 2003, the day Saddam was run out of town, the day millions of Iraqis never thought they'd live to see.

COMING soon to a screen near you, we exclusively reveal the contents of the latest TV ad of a well known credit card company.

Total cost of US operations to date: $646 billion.

Cost of future operations: $913 billion.

Future veterans' costs: $717 billion.

Other military costs/adjustments eg demobbing/re-arming after the war: $404 billion.

Social costs: $415 billion.

Total US costs - more than $3 trillion.

Total UK costs - £20 billion.

Total worldwide cost - $6 trillion.

Saddam Hussein falling through the trapdoor to Hell...



PRICELESS!

There are some things money just can't buy; for everything else, there's Mastercard.
