"The Cost of War is brought to you by National Priorities Project.

National Priorities Project (NPP) is a 501(c)(3) research organization that analyzes and clarifies federal data so that people can understand and influence how their tax dollars are spent. Located in Northampton, MA, since 1983, NPP focuses on the impact of federal spending at the national, state, congressional district and local levels. For more information, please visit our website."

(This is a real-time update on overall spending on war, as well as Iraq and Afghanistan, and you may select the United States overall or by state's spending. Of course, the 0.01% are raking it in through Halliburton-like overcharging, etc. Permanent war budgets...)
