The estimated cost of each Tomahawk missile is 832,000 dollars, and the cost of one Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) is 16,000,000 dollars. The total amount we spent to blow stuff up this week was roughly 65,100,000 dollars. I'm not sure what we have to show for it.

Update 3:00 PM Sunday 16 April: Some good news today. There are now reports that the per-unit cost of one MOAB is probably closer to $170,000 than $16,000,000.

Does anybody actually know how much money we really need to protect the country?
