Ten years ago I was duped into believing that war was sometimes necessary. And when I say I was duped, I was DUPED. Completely lied to and I ate it up. I took a very unpopular position among my peers and argued for it strongly.
I was wrong. I was lost.
EIGHTY BILLION DOLLARS lost spent.
4,486 US SOLDIERS lost dead.
100-150 THOUSAND Iraqi’s lost dead.
It’s been ten years, and it seems like we’re just as lost now as we were then.
It’s sad, really.
