Operation Odyssey Dawn’s cost (already!): Over $62 million

  • 110 number of Tomahawk missiles that have been fired by U.S. forces over Libya so far
  • $569,000 the cost of each of those missiles, according to the U.S. Navy’s own fact file on the missiles source

» Oh, and there are other costs, too: It costs a fighter jet thousands of dollars an hour just to get off the ground — for example, according to a 2009 estimate from The Washington Post, an F-22 (one of the types of fighter jets in use over in Libya) costs around $44,000 per flying hour. And that’s not even discussing manpower or intelligence or other technologies in use. War is expensive. Even a couple of hours in.
