Remember when the Bush was first talking about invading me? Do you recall what they estimated the war would cost? Well, White House economic adviser Lawrence Lindsey estimated total Iraq war costs of $100 billion to $200 billion. But then White House budget director Mitch Daniels called Lindsey's numbers "very, very high."

Ah, the good old days....

A new study now suggests that if you factor in ALL the costs of the war, including things such as extended health care for wounded soldiers, higher oil prices due to instability in the region, and lost productivity from disabled veterans, the total costs comes in around $2 trillion!!!
