Here's a time-line of the worst war idea ever hatched by any U.S. president over our nation's two hundred and thirty-three year history. The war in Iraq is seven years old today, almost to the hour. Going on eight.
From Crooks and Liars:
"As of today, iCasualties lists 4,703 allied service members killed in Iraq and Iraq Body Count estimates that 95,680 - 104,382 Iraqi civilians (not insurgents/military/soldiers) have been killed.
"And that doesn't include injured veterans or those who committed suicide. Tens of thousands of families have been torn apart by the what we now know was the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq. We've spent $747.3 BILLION in Iraq, with the full cooperation of the pearl-clutching deficit hawks in the Republican Party.
"And not one of us can honestly claim that we are safer. What a sad anniversary."
