Editorialist sums up the costs of the Iraq war.

"Wasted dollars are just one of the costs. Nearly 4,000 U.S. troops and at least tens of thousands of Iraqis have lost their lives. The conflict has left Iraq divided along its religious and ethnic fault, strengthened the theocracy in Iran, and made Uncle Sam a pariah in much of the Islamic world." Endorsing the view presented in the book The Three Trillion Dollar War by Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes, a Boston Globe editorial writer pointed to other than monetary costs.
