Check this article in the Guardian

Stiglitz's estimate include VA bills and such, but the cost is enormous and seriously understimated. So even if people supported the war, the monetary cost far outweighs anything reasonable. Crazy!

Ironically, this might make the Kurds and Shiites feel even more grateful, as the US pretty much killed itself trying to "liberate" them. Unfortunately, it's the poor who always pay.
