How much did it cost to enforce the UN sanctions and the no-fly zones?
I remember being stunned by the dollar amount required to put a DDG on deployment for five months, and that didn't include payroll or any of the workup costs. I can only imagine how much an entire carrier battle group costs, and for twelve years there were two constantly on station. The cost for the other services must also be staggering.
I'm not even sure I could comprehend the number if someone gave it to me.
