1. Just wait until the rest of the "bill" comes due.
Our of 350,000 troops in GW1, 150,000 are on medical disability most believe due to depleted uranium. Another 50,000 have applied for disability. The number dead due to the war has gone from 321 when we left to 11,000 today because of effects of toxins received during the war.

And they were there for only 6 weeks.

What troubles are laying in wait for those that are serving months and years over there? And how about the Iraqis themselves?

The cost is only starting.

2. Gulf War 1 Figures
what I have is a little over 500,000 involved and 260,000-270,000 on disability for a total of 56% of participants. Exact figures are at home maybe I can post them later or tomorrow.

Anyway quite tragic and your statement "The cost is only starting" pretty well sums it up.

4. That's 30 dollars for every living human being on earth
It is breathtaking the squandering of goodwill and resources.
