Happy Anniversary!

Lest we let an important anniversary slip by unnoticed, I hereby inform you, if you didn't know it already, that today is the 7th anniversary of our invasion of Iraq.

Costs (best estimates) so far for this illegal and immoral war:
  • 4,300+ American lives
  • $747 billion and rising
  • at least 95,600 Iraqi lives and rising (nobody really knows, some estimates put the number six times higher)
  • reduced, not enhanced, American security
  • unremitting hatred by the vast majority of Arabs and pretty much all their countries, too
  • a truly baleful and crippling effect on the American economy
  • immeasurable fraud, waste, and abuse by defense contractors, the bloated maggots of the Iraq invasion story
Allow me to repeat: Happy Anniversary!
