    Cost Of Libya War: $100 Million Dollars A Day

    Megan Scully
    National Journal
    March 22, 2011

    With U.N. coalition forces bombarding Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi from the sea and air, the United States’ part in the operation could ultimately hit several billion dollars — and require the Pentagon to request emergency funding from Congress to pay for it.

    The first day of Operation Odyssey Dawn had a price tag that was well over $100 million for the U.S. in missiles alone. And the U.S. military, which remains in the lead now in its third day, has pumped millions more into air- and sea-launched strikes targeting air-defense sites and ground-force positions along Libya’s coastline.

    The ultimate total that the United States spends will hinge on the length and scope of the strikes as well as on the contributions of its coalition allies. But Todd Harrison, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, said on Monday that the U.S. costs could “easily pass the $1 billion mark on this operation, regardless of how well things go.”

    about how 60 percent of Americans thought they had a retard as president

    becuase of his lane brain course of militarization and

    creating enemies that the American public must hate

    "OH SADDAM HUSSEIN THIS AND SADDAM HUSSEIN THAT"


    Even the conservative neocons know how much evidence was there for George Bush juniors impeachment!!!

    No president in the history of the United States was more riled for his stupidty then W in fact 2 movies where made about the knucka
    "Farenheight 9/11" and "W"
    But a question James from Phillie, this is not some type of apologetic for Obama's behavior i in regards to this military action that even congress is ticked off about,
    is it????

    And when I see Santa Claus come down the boiler flu at Cypress Hills projects in East New York,
    i will video it and make a youtube,

    but seriously has anyone looked at where our federal taxes go?

    And if one is too rich or too poor to pay taxes, one pays in other ways via the goods and services they use.

    As of Tuesday, the coalition had fired at least 162 sea-launched Tomahawk missiles priced at $1 million to $1.5 million apiece and dispatched B-2 stealth bombers -- round-trip from Missouri -- to drop 2,000-pound bombs on Libyan sites.

    Total flying time: 25 hours. Operating cost for one hour: at least $10,000.

    Yet those numbers only provide part of the costs. The B-2 bombers require expensive fuel -- and rely on air tankers to refuel in flight -- and probably needed parts replaced upon their return to Whiteman Air Force Base. The pilots most certainly will get combat pay.

    An array of U.S. warplanes; 11 ships steaming in the Mediterranean, including three submarines, two destroyers and two amphibious ships; and one F-15 fighter jet that crashed, costing $75 million or more -- it all adds up to numbers that unnerve budget-conscious lawmakers.

    "Every six hours we have another billion-dollar deficit," said Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md., a member of the House Armed Services Committee. "This could cost us a billion dollars there, which means simply another billion-dollar debt that our kids, our grandkids and our great-grandkids are going to have to pay back."

    The Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, in an analysis this month, estimated that the Libyan no-fly zone could cost $100 million to $300 million per week.http://www.aolnews.com/2011/03/23/us-effort-in-libya-costs-hundreds-of-millions-so-far/
