The cost of Iraq war to USA

Recently i was reading the latest issue of tehelka magzine,which has an article relating to US invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and its cost to the people of USA.
The facts are painful and shows the foolishness of Bush administartion :
More than 4,000 US troops have been killed in Iraq.Some 7300 in Afghanistan.
More than 58,000 US wounded,injured or taken ill.
Approximately 100,000 US soldiers returned home suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
The economic cost of the war to the US taxpayers :
US spends about $ 16 billion per month only on the operational costs in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This does not include the yearly budget of $500 billion of the Department of Defence.
The total cost of this invasion can go up to $ 3 trillion.
This does not include the loss of poor iraqi and afhgani civilians.
Is it justified in the name of weapons of mass destruction or to dislodge Saddam Hussein or to catch saddam hussein ?
what is this,Americans have to decide .
