96 Billion To Be Blown

THE price of freedom in Iraq will be calculated in blood, sweat, tears - and cold, hard cash. Experts predict Saddam's regime will fall quickly, but they will be the most expensive few days and weeks of combat in history.

The White House predicts the onslaught will cost around pounds 42billion, but that rockets to pounds 96billion when Britain and other allies have been taken into account.

John Pike of the Washington Military Research Institute [GlobalSecurity.org] said: "Never in the history of human conflict has such a vast material advantage been displayed by one force over another."
