Downing Street Memo has an interesting collection of material that constitutes a timeline on how we became involved in the Iraq War. I think it is useful to review material like this occasionally so that we can maintain perspective on this war and on this presidency.
Did five US soldiers rape and kill an Iraqi woman, then go on a killing and burning spree that resulted in three more deaths? It looks like at least four human beings are dead, and I don’t think their deaths were caused by Saddam Hussein or WMDs. Oh, this dreadful Iraq War! The Iraqi people, I’m sure, will be glad when we go home. (BTW, has anyone noticed that incidents of this kind seem to be increasing? What is going on? To me, the Iraq War is not one of our country’s most shining moments.)
Fasting for Freedom Update, Day 2: No coffee, soft drinks, or chocolate, but I am a little discouraged. I had hoped to get some people to join me on my fast, but there have been no takers so far. I understand that this is my thing. I just hope that people can somehow get enthusiastic about voting the Republicans out in November. If not, we may just be in for more of the same. I can’t stand the thought of that.
