First tomahawk launched from US missile destroyer in Operation Odyssey Dawn
Barack Obama has now fired more cruise missiles than all other Nobel Peace prize winners combined.
From Abu Muqawama:
A Tomahawk Missile cost $569,000 in FY99, so if my calculations are correct, they cost a little over $736,000 today assuming they are the same make and model. The United States fired 110 missiles yesterday, which adds up to a cost of around $81 million. That’s… about 33 times the amount of money National Public Radio receives in grants each year from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which the House of Representatives… wants to de-fund.
