Asymmetrical Monetary Warfare

A recently leaked report from the U.S. government shows the Iraqi insurgency is operating on around $100 million a year.

The U.S. is spending about $100 billion a year to station troops there.

So, America is spending 1000 times as much as the insurgents and can only achieve "not winning" against them...troubling.

These numbers imply the insurgents would only need a modest increase in their funding to offset any majorAmerican effort.
