Bringing the financial costs home

A friend sent me this financial breakdown by state (and by region in some areas)of the Iraq invasion. It's by the National Priorities Project, a national nonprofit organization. This really brings home the cost of the war as Kerry talks about how we bore 90% of the cost, 90% of the casualties. And this analysis does not do justice to the human costs, emotionally and psychologically.

Imagine what this money could buy in your community. Such an incredible waste.
