    It clearly wasn't worth you typing out a few words to make some particular thought or perspective of yours known to us.

      Lol.  Considering I provide perspective on every other post, don't you think there was a reason I didn't for this one?

    " The titanic bill for the Iraq War was $1 trillion, all of its hidden in the ballooning US national debt. Nearly 5,000 US soldiers were killed; some 50,000 wounded, many with grave brain injuries. Iraqi casualties are uncertain, though the total is likely over one million.

    Parts of Iraq are contaminated by US and British depleted uranium munitions. Diseases, wiped out under the late Saddam Hussein, have returned. Saddam’s sadistic secret police have been replaced by almost equally cruel security forces of the US-backed Baghdad regime. Once among the most advanced Arab nations, much of Iraq today is ruined. At least it no longer threatens its neighbors." - Eric Margolis

    If this is worth it, what wouldn't be worth it? 2 trillion dollars? 10 thousand US killed, 100 thousand wounded? 2 million Iraqi dead?
