The Fifth Anniversary

Today marks the fifth anniversary of the illegal war -- followed by the illegal occupation -- of Iraq.

In that time we've lost 3992 American lives to a war that should never have been fought. It was the wrong war against the wrong enemy, in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

All for a fucking business deal over oil.

I don't much feel like being funny today. I feel like being pissed off.

Which I am.

As much as I hate to say it, it is not an illegal war, it was made legitimate by Congress.

And didn't the U.N. give the United States the OK to stay in Iraq? And hasn't the democratically elected Iraq government asked the U.S. to stay? How is the occupation illegal?

Even if you were at your usual best, I don't think you could get so much as a snicker out of any conscious American.

The Daily Show tonight (Thu) was so brilliant with their focus on Cheney's trip to the Middle East, but I couldn't laugh. It seemed like Jon knew he was close enough to home to not expect an uproarious reaction.

I did laugh at 'Lil Bush's Cheney mowing the lawn in his Darth Vader mask, though....

War Is Not The Answer.
Bring Them Home Now.
