The Iraq war has cost US taxpayers $526 billion in direct costs and about $1.3 trillion to the economy, and with fears of a recession looming the war's economic impact is causing concern amongst US voters. Al Jazeera's Sebastian Walker reports.
The total costs of our war and occupation in Iraq will cost over $3 trillion. If you think you could spend that money better than our President, then go on a $3 trillion shopping spree.
