I don't know much about anything, but the causality figures were 85 fighters.  The cost to carry out the mission is astronomical in speed, distance, and logistical coordination costs.  I don't mind spending the money on the military, but we have to take a cue from the old masters of war and do it efficiently and cost effectively.  There was lots of ways to do this mission besides flying heavies thousands of miles for millions of dollars.  Just saying.
