One quick read of
THIS article on the estimated two million refugees from Iraq* and the
other two million left homeless inside Iraq and one sees the story of the war and the Iraq that George built.
Bush and Cheney have more than decimated Iraq. That is, in a country of 26 million people, Bush and Cheney have killed directly, caused the deaths
indirectly, or caused the evacuation, of over four million people. That is, over 15% of the population has been cut up, root and branch, from the
nation. Focusing on two people, a doctor and spouse, CNN tells the story of far too many Iraqis. Abtan, a doctor, fled to Jordan to avoid certain
decapitation. He has lost ten relatives and four friends to violent death, "including two doctors murdered at work. His wife has lost three
relatives. They have no plans to return to Iraq anytime soon, but they want better lives now."
What a shame, what a crying shame.
Imagine having to abandon your house, leave your belongings behind.. forget your life and move to another country... sitting in your seat while you
hear daily of friends being killed, other family being kidnapped or old workmates joining the insurgency because they have no other chance at life?
I mean it doesnt really matter that ALL This is happening, because of lies does it... especially when the UN Comes out and says something like this
The United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan has told the BBC the US-led invasion of Iraq was an illegal act that contravened the UN charter.
He said the decision to take action in Iraq should have been made by the Security Council, not unilaterally.
But ya know what, it doesnt really matter.. because we all know that this war was planned and prepared for LONG before the US even went to the UN...
Whats the use of having a UN, when you choose to ignore it ?
But, alas... even though we made so many drastic errors, which ended up costing thousands of our OWN soliders lives, along with hunderds of thousands
of lives of foreign citizens in their own home.. our great, and honourable leaders have told us the answer to this unfortuante mistake, is 21,000 more
troops.. because we have seen that violence beats violence.
So why are we seeing reports such as this?
Wasn’t that “surge” and security crackdown supposed to be reducing the violence?
Certainly that was the argument Bush made when he announced his latest new “strategy” of adding 21,500 troops to the occupying force in Iraq. He
said that the so-called “surge” was needed to “reduce the cycle of violence,” but so far, the violence has only increased, with more bombings,
more killings, more Iraqis—both Shias and Sunnis—dying--albeit spread around in the areas outside of the central city--and more American troops
This is progress?
I guess maybe it is in the Through the Looking Glass world inhabited by the president and by the vice president, who recently declared that the
decision by Britain to cut and run from Basra was a sign of “progress” in the Iraq War.
youve really got to ask yourself,
We made so many mistakes, went against so many international laws.. and 'pissed' off so many of our allies... what in the world are we going to do
If 21,500 more troops didnt help, elections didnt help, threats and violence didnt help... what is left for the USA Administration to do?
I mean they have made an absolute FORTUNE from this war... and only have 1 and half more years to have to stand the heat until they retire...
What about the poor Iraqi's?
The millions now homeless, friendless, familyless?
What about the soliders who are coming home with slashed benefits?
Haunting memories and dreams?
The internal pain of having seen a friend murdered in front of you, or having to pull the trigger against another human being?
What for them?
Iraq has been devestated. It will never, EVER again see peace on the level it was under Saddam's day. The people will never forget the crimes
inflicted on them from the USA..
I dont believe certain people inside the United states understands the sheer velocity of this situation? the reach it is going to have around the
world for decades to come...
You think these people:
Give a damn that 'our' reasons for going to war turned out to be BS?
Your think they are going to forgive us ? allow us to leave then just turn to the WESTERN enforced way of life? while we suck them dry from behind
while taking their natural resources?
Dont you look at this :
3,200 times and ask yourself....
'' For everything we have gained..... was Saddam really worth all our men, all their people, their buildings, their land and our security? "
Especially when saddam was AGAINST Osama and Alqaeda, and he posed NO THREAT, and NEVER THREATENED US in over A DECADE?
Tell me, what exactly is it about this war, that people still find justified?
