US spending per soldier per month

For Iraq.

$32,000 / soldier / month.

Why does that not sound so abso-fucking-lutely ridiculous as the anti-war left would make it sound. I mean, considering all the IED destruction/logistical support/armaments/pay/benefits/gas costs/bribes to locals - shit, that *really* isn't that much.

Think about it.
