I have always been told that everyone makes mistakes, and that "to err is human." I rarely make them, mistakes that is, but I must admit I do. I do not know any person who does not make a mistake or two, or three or four or a thousand, in his lifetime. If such a person existed he wouldn't be called a "person", he'd be called GOD!
When is someone going to admit that the war in Iraq was a mistake? Who is going to admit that the war in Iraq was a mistake? It was a mistake from the very beginning. I'll even give the Bush Administration the benefit of the doubt and say the intelligence was incorrect, not that Bush & Company twisted the intelligence for their own purpose. And if the intelligence was wrong, then it was a mistake! The way the war has been handled is a mistake! So when is someone going to admit this and correct the mistake?
I know that alot has been lost in the war. Some 2,800+ American lives have been lost, and today Iraq claimed 150,000 civilians, not counting soldiers, have lost their lives in Iraq since the US invasion. It is said the US must win so the lives of our soldiers lost will not be in vain. But I ask how many more lives must be lost before someone finally gets it? THE WAR IN IRAQ WAS A MISTAKE! Plain and simple! We are in a quagmire! We leave now and who knows what will happen? We stay another 2, 3, 4, 10 years and how many more lives will be lost unnecessarily?
Everyone is all excited about the Dems taking over control of the House and Senate. It is time for a change in direction all proclaim. But what kind of change? Maybe the Iraq war should be recognized for what it is, one huge mistake! The event in US history will go down as one of the biggest blunders ever made! George W. will go down in history as one of the biggest buffoons in history! So why not just stop beating around the bush? Why not stop sugar-coating the mistake? Admit the mistake and move on.
