"The United States has been at war in Iraq for 38 months. As of this writing, more than 2,400 U.S. soldiers and 100,000 Iraqis, mostly civilians,
have died. More than 18,000 U.S. soldiers have been permanently injured. The financial cost for the war is nearing 300 billion dollars, and could
ultimately exceed 2 trillion dollars.
How did we get to this place? We didn't arrive in the middle of the bloodiest war since Vietnam by accident, or happenstance. Far from it. Like
Hansel and Gretel from the children's fairy tale, the American people were led deeper and deeper into a frighteningly dark forest, to a terrifying
place where horrible things happen to little children - and to children not so little (for we are all - every last one of us - children). "
I stumbled onto this by accident looking for main stream news coverage of Dick Cheney at norad on 9/11. This is an excellent factual collage to the
buildup of iraq. Don't let the ministry of truth ("1984 Orwell") get ahold of this information!
