...until you start actually breaking down costs. At approximately $409 per person for the War on Terror, that doesn't sound so bad. The cost of my GameCube, six games, three other controllers, memory cards, and a carrying case probably are about that much. I'm pretty sure that most people would value not being flown into skyscrapers more highly than a GameCube setup. Furthermore, given that the rich pay most of the taxes in America, the amount that I personally paid is probably fairly low (being a college student who is employed off-and-on). So, while the number is big, it's not all that impressive when you really look at it.
