The War in Iraq has officially been ended…whatever that means. We still have troops, bases and commitments that will continue to drain our resources and treasury. This war can only be described as an unmitigated disaster…or in the words of Clint Eastwood…a gigantic clusterfuck! The lies, the arrogance, the stupidity of the American people to re-elect George Bush all make this one of the lowest points in American history. It continues to amaze me when looking around the world or back through history, how small groups of evil, misguided or ignorant people can cause so much death, damage and destruction. We still have a long way to go.
Though the war in Iraq has now ended
Those responsible still are defended.
With waste on a scale
That colors us pale
It’s left scars that will never be mended.
