Bush team hedging about war justification
Dec. 14, 2003 
We did not charge hundreds of miles into the heart of Iraq, pay a bitter cost in casualties, defeat a brutal dictator and liberate 25 million people, only to retreat before a band of thugs and assassins.

Per person ~= $4400  (290M pop).

Annual Cost of War = $100B. Iraq population = 25M. $4000/person.
