No end in sight.
The military death toll in Iraq has reached 2,500, a U.S. Defense Department spokesman said.Just because he killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and President Bush does a photo-op to Iraq doesn't mean anything.
The number of U.S. military personnel killed in action in Iraq since the March 2003 invasion was 1,972 as of 9 a.m. today New York time, Army Lieutenant Colonel Jeremy Martin said. Including members of the U.S. military who have died from other causes, such a illness or accidents, the total death toll is 2,500, Martin said.
Remember, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was giveen up by his own people (that should tell you something like maybe his people wanted him dead). We had multiple chances to kill him before the war but the Bush administration chose to do nothing because Bush and Co. were so obsessed with going to war.
Don't let the photo-ops and statements fool you...nothing has changed in Iraq and the US will be stuck in that country way after Bush is out of office.
If they lied about everything else, why should you believe this administration now?
Look, Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11 (yet this administration consistently fool Americans in believing this for political purposes). Osama bin Laden is still on the loose. Our relation with the rest of the world is in the tank while the rich are getting richer (tax breaks) while everyone else is paying more out of their pocket (notice that gas is STILL 3.00+ per gallon).
Of yeah, lets not forget that the Taliban and the drug trade is stronger than ever in Afghanistan.
This whole war is a joke. We we're lied to by this administration time and time again. Bush took us went into the mess with too few troops, no post-war plan, tortured countless Iraqis, and played politics with the American people by attempting to link Iraq with 9-11 while calling anyone who is against this war "un-American".
And this is just the tip of the iceberg...
How many more lies do we need to endure before you get the message?
How many more young Americans need to die before we do something...like vote the Republicans and people like Joe Lieberman out of office.
Imagine what will happen if these guys control Congress after 2006 when they have nothing to loose?
UPDATE: Ned Lamont said it best yesterday.
Greenwich Democrat Ned Lamont slammed the Bush administration and his political opponent, Sen. Joe Lieberman, on Wednesday, saying they pushed America into an ill-fated war in Iraq.You should be concerned Joe...
"George Bush and Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney and Joe Lieberman rushed us into this war, got our 132,000 troops stuck in a bloody civil war, and they should be held accountable," Lamont said.
The statement drew loud applause from several hundred liberal Democrats that attended a panel discussion Wednesday organized by the Campaign for America's Future at the Washington Hilton Hotel.
