Unhappy Fifth Anniversary of the Iraq War

Well, it's five years and counting and what is there to say.


Sara Gould of the Ms. Foundation, for one, has a great oped up at the org's blog which begins with a good ole Albert Einstein quote: "The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them." Yesss.

Over at Women's eNews, there's an interesting piece offering a women's perspective on military service and its aftermath. One returning female vet offers advice to the next commander in chief: "I would request that they limit deployments and the time you have between deployments....That is really hurting morale."

And MOMocrats are stirring it up today too. (Thanks, Joanne, for the heads up!)

Just in case anyone's craving a refresher, here's a lovely timeline of what's gone down since we invaded. On Jan. 9, the World Health Organization estimated that the actual number of Iraqi civilian deaths due to the war lo these past 5 years is at 151,000. What'cha going to do about it, George, tough guy, huh? Man.

We're all talking about it today over at MOMocrats, as well.
