Yesterday marked the 901st military death in Iraq since the beginning of the Iraq war, with another 5394 wounded. A year and a half later, and as to the need for the invasion in order to secure ourselves.
May 1: Bush speaks aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, saying “major combat operations in Iraq have ended.” 139 troops had died at that point, 762 have died since then.
Facts speak for themselves, major combat operations have not ended. It’s one thing to be wrong, it’s another thing to be 500% wrong. And there’s no end in sight to this catastrophe of a war, with either Bush or Kerry.
