Today, October 7, 2009, marks the eighth anniversary George W. Bush's invasion of Afghanistan.
The cost so far for this unwinnable war and occupation?
As of this writing:
• More than $228 billion of our U.S. tax dollars;
• 869 U.S. military fatalities (that's warspeak for dead American troops);
• and countless innocent civilian men, women, and children.
All this while Osama bin Laden runs free and the Taliban continue terrorizing the Afghan countryside.
Please take some time today for a moment of silence in honor of all the victims of this mishandled war, and then tell President Obama that we need a sensible exit strategy now. Enough is enough!
