The cost of war

The astonishing figure is that the Iraq/Afghanistan conflict has now cost one-half what we (the US) spent in World War 2, after adjusting for inflation!!! Now, how could we defeat Japan and Germany in a four-year war which had 10 million men in uniform for only twice what this latest conflict has cost? Especially considering how poorly we're doing in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Halliburton profit? Cruise missiles?
