Iraq war cost: $6 trillion. What else could have been done?

In case you were wondering, the price tag for the war in Iraq could
eventually top $6 trillion.

Tuesday marks the 10th anniversary of the U.S. invasion, occupation
and slugfest of Iraq, which, lest we forget, was begun in the name of
protecting us from weapons of mass destruction that never existed. A
study by Brown University's Watson Institute for International Studies
finds that the war has cost $1.7 trillion so far, with an additional
$490 billion in benefits owed to war veterans. Those costs could grow
to more than $6 trillion over the next 40 years, the report concluded.
