Iraq + 2

March 19, 2005 at 5:02 pm | Posted in Politics | Leave a comment

Today marks the second anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Moving the daily happenings in Iraq off the front page cannot hide the fact that an average of two soldiers are dying every day with no end in sight. I hate it when pro-war supporters compare this death rate as being less than 40,000 killed each year due to auto accidents in this country. That’s what they call “supporting our troops”; I call it cold-blooded.

The Iraqis are better off now than under Saddam Hussein, but they have paid just as much in blood over the past two years (an estimated 100,000 deaths) as they have over Saddam’s 20-year reign (1,000,000 deaths).

Everyone is looking for an exit out of this mess, except for the insurgents.
