The Cost of WarAn outdated post to be sure (the current cost of the Iraq War is $464 Billion dollars and rising every second), but I’ve yet to find a better visual aid in wrapping my head around the astronomical financial cost of the war so far. Using blocks of $72,000 dollars (which itself is roughly the size of a box of copier paper), this series of illustrations puts all that money into some frightening perspective.

I have to tell you, it made me a little sick having to add a ‘war’ category.
