$350 Million for 42 Hours

Red Cross

Like the post of Frank Boosman on pseudorandom:

"According to this story in the Chicago Sun-Times, the war in Iraq has cost $130 billion to date (per the Office of Management and Budget). Given that we invaded Iraq 20 March 2003, that comes to 656 days since the invasion, which in turn equals $198,730,732 per day.

In other words, the total amount committed by the US government to date for tsunami relief — $350,000,000 — equals 42.27 hours of the cost of the war in Iraq. Just to put things in perspective."
