Happy Anniversary, War
I wrote a lengthy post looking back two years at the start of the war. It’s over here.
Two years later many thousands of Iraqis are dead. Are the ones that survived better off? Over 1500 US soldiers are dead. Are we in the US safer? No WMD were found. Are they now ‘out in the open’, or on the black market, or did they even exist in the first place? Saddam Hussein is in jail. Is HW proud of W? Now that Saddam isn’t able to support terrorists, is al-Qaeda weakened? Will we now be able to exploit Iraq’s oil completely for US? If so, how long will it last? Have we bought ourselves any time as Empire Supreme? Has our leadership’s war machine with it’s giant propaganda appendage plunged us deeper into the abyss of Fascism? It’s been two years, how much longer do we have to figure this stuff out?
