While Baghdad Burns

The Iraq invasion, the elective war, the war that has had so many reasons for being and so little purpose to exist will be a festering sore that this country will be a long time healing. The Iraq conversation has descended into an endless discussion of strategic errors and mismanagement rather than an analysis of what it really is; a morally bankrupt decision to attack a country that posed no threat to America, resulting in the ultimate devastation of a land, its people and infrastructure on a scale that Saddam could never have achieved. What have we done? What have we become?
