The Costs of Staying the Course

The Costs of Staying the Course (registration required) tries to rebut the argument that the Iraq war has been cheap compared to earlier conflicts. The basic points are:

  2. More soldiers are surviving their wounds, so our attrition rates are higher than would appear from the death toll.
