The cost of doing business

In the Haditha Massacre papers the NYT pulled off a garbage dump in Iraq, Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Steve Johnson referred to 15 dead civilians (actually 24) as “just a cost of doing business.” So that’s okay then.

I’m not sure which part of that is the most insultingly dismissive, “a cost of doing business” or “just.”
