    Was it worth the sacrifice of lives, physical maiming, and money?

    hell NO!

    but why no parades for our veterans of that war?!

    tuesday, march 20, the ninth anniversary of the invasion, should be a date set aside for our nation to hold parades honoring our iraq vets

    they deserve much more. they also deserve nothing less

    I agree. I was also surprised how quiet it was for a news story, in many cases not even the lead story. WTF?

    It was for the corporate shills... but not really anyone else. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqs dead as "collateral", a civilization reduced to rubble yet again, American soldiers lost defending oil fields and attacking "insurgents" (a.k.a Iraqi civilians who are fed up), and hundreds of billions of dollars of tax payer money. It was a pretty costly war for one that shouldn't have happened in the first place, but did because of upper level lies and deceit.

    Too soon to tell for me.

    Earlier in the week BO had nice things to say about the outcome. He said this at Fort Bragg so he may have been lying to the soldier to make them feel better. He probably doesn't believe a word he said.

    Its harder to end a war than begin one. Indeed, everything that American troops have done in Iraq - all the fighting and all the dying, the bleeding and the building, and the training and the partnering - all of it has led to this moment of success. Now, Iraq is not a perfect place. It has many challenges ahead. But were leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq, with a representative government that was elected by its people. Were building a new partnership between our nations. And we are ending a war not with a final battle, but with a final march toward home.



    This is an extraordinary achievement, nearly nine years in the making

    Hell no. Not even a little bit.

    No. Invading Iraq a second time was foolhardy, and was not worth the cost of lives and money.
