HAS THE IRAQ WAR ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING?

You all know the appalling cost of the Iraq war: nearly 4000 American military dead; nearly 30,000 wounded; more than 100,000 Iraqui civilians killed all at a cost of more than a billion dollars a day.

But just when you thought you had heard all the bad news, another horror slithers out from under the rocks and hits you in the solar plexus. In 2005, the last year for which the numbers are available, at least 6,256 U.S veterans committed suicide, double the rate of the civilian population. According to a CBS television program the American military is experiencing a “suicide epidemic” with veterans killing themselves at the rate of 120 a week.

One father of a 23-year-old soldier who shot himself says of the government, “They don’t want the true numbers of casualties to be known.”

So has the Iraq war done any good? It’s not enough to say as Bush and the neo-cons around him contend that the big accomplishment was regime change – the deposing and death of Saddam Hussein. But by all the normal measurements — security, electric power, sewage and government services – it seems clear the Iraqis were better off under Hussein than under the American occupation.

Can you think of a single good thing the Iraqi war has accomplished?

    The war in Iraq was based on lies, is waged on lies and has produced nothing but chaos and a deep distrust of things Bush.

    It was a mistake from the get-go… imagine how much better the war in afghanistan would have gone if the Iraq fiasco hadn’t happened!!

    The war in Iraq has accomplished nothing positive… nothing. It’s all bad news all the time. The money, the US economy, the deaths, the stability of the middle east, the lives of Iraqis…. it’s all gone down hill since the invasion.
