I've tried to avoid posting stories about suicide bombers, and people dying, and the fact that 270 civilians have been killed in a span of 9 days. It's just too depressing. However the escalation in violence, especially in Baghdad calls for some attention. Obviously things are not going well in Iraq. The chances of things getting better dwindles each day.
With the news of the Bush Administration's "Secret Plan" to invade Iraq 8 months before the actual invasion coming to light, it is time for this country to question the validity of our occupation.
A lot of people have said that invading Iraq was for the benefit of mankind. Removing a tyrant such as Saddam Hussein was paramount.
Well, Saddam Hussein is no longer in power. Our "mission" is complete.
I've said this once, and I'll say it again. Please do what you can to influence your elected officials into bringing our men and women home.
We are in Iraq so the rich can make more money. Is the death and destruction we've caused worth it?
