A shameful 10-year anniversary

Today, March 19, 2013, marks the 10-year anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq - a country that played no part in the 9/11 terror attacks, and which posed no detectable threat to us. It was a war based on deceptions.

And what do we have to show for it?

• Saddam Hussein and his two sons are long dead.

• Abu Ghraib is fading from the public memory.

• More than 4,000 American troops lost their lives, and more than 32,000 were wounded.

• Countless innocent Iraqi civilian men, women, and children were killed or maimed.

• More than $800 billion taxpayer dollars were wasted.

• And America lost its moral standing in the world.

Can anyone other than a stubborn neocon truly say that the war was was worth it?
