      _The Total Iraq and Afghanistan Price Tag: Over $4 Trillion_
      (http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2013/03/28/the-total-iraq-and-afghanistan-pricetag-ov
      er-4-trillion) --The wars are over, but the spending is just beginning,
      says a new study 28 Mar 2013 The U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been
      declared officially over, but America has barely begun to pay the bill,
      says a new study. The Iraq and Afghanistan wars will together cost $4 to $6
      trillion, according a new study from Harvard University's Kennedy School. A
      large share of those bills has yet to be paid: the study finds that the
      U.S. has spent around $2 trillion thus far on the two controversial wars, and
      that growing commitments to spending on military personnel and veterans
      will drive much of the spending in the decades to come.

      _Iraqi oil: Once seen as U.S. boon, now it's mostly China's_
      (http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2013/03/27/187100/iraqi-oil-once-seen-as-us-boon.html) 27
      Mar 2013 Ten years after the United States invaded and occupied Iraq, the
      country's oil industry is poised to boom and make the troubled nation the No.
      2 oil exporter in the world. But the nation that's moving to take advantage
      of Iraq's riches isn't the United States. It's China. The International
      Energy Agency expects China to become the main customer for Iraq’s vast oil
      reserves.


      _NATO strike kills at least one child in Afghanistan_
      (http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/03/30/us-afghanistan-airstrike-idUSBRE92T03020130330) 30
      Mar 2013 A NATO helicopter killed at least one child and nine 'suspected
      Taliban fighters' in Afghanistan's east on Saturday, officials and local
      residents said. Last month Afghan President Hamid Karzai forbade Afghan forces
      from calling for NATO air support and forbade international forces from using
      air strikes "in Afghan homes or villages" after Afghan forces called in a
      strike that killed 10 civilians. There were conflicting reports on the
      death toll from the air strike. A Reuters reporter saw the bodies of two
      children. One was in school uniform. Local elder Jan Mohammad and other residents
      said he was killed in the air strike. The reporter also saw the hand and
      foot of a toddler at the site of the air strike, but the circumstances of
      the death were not immediately clear. [Always blame the US. Even when you're
      wrong, you're right. --LRP]
