This video from the USA is the film Iraq for sale; about making a lot of money off Iraq.

Report: War Costing US $12B a Month

Iraq, Afghanistan Costing United States About $12 Billion a Month, Congress Agency Says

The boost in troop levels in Iraq has increased the cost of war there and in Afghanistan to $12 billion a month, and the total for Iraq alone is nearing a half-trillion dollars, congressional analysts say.

All told, Congress has appropriated $610 billion in war-related money since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror assaults, roughly the same as the war in Vietnam. Iraq alone has cost $450 billion.
