As the last combat troops leave Iraq, I have one question, “Can you drive from the airport to Baghdad without security?” When the Saddam statue toppled you couldn’t. How many lives, dollars, years later, can you now? Surreally tragic.

I came out of my writing bunker to watch the few embedded reporters all these years later. It breaks my heart, so much for so little.

  1. Very well said!!! Isn’t it a shame that those on the Bush/Cheney side will not listen to reason when bringing up the war in Iraq. Thousands of lives lost for what? Should have been in Afghanistan the entire time. As a NYC resident, not a day goes by that I don’t think about 9/11 and what may be coming in the near future. Certainly nothing that was planned in Iraq!!! Ok, now my blood is boiling.
