Costs of Policing the World

The current estimate for the costs of America waging war in Iraq and Afghanistan could reach $1.6 trillion by 2009.

That's 1.6 000 000 000 000 dollars...which despite being a bit gurlie compared to a proper trillion in the UK (a million million million, hence tri (m)illion = 18 zeros) is still bog fulls of cash in anyone's book.
