We’ve been in Iraq for seven years.

My daughter was about six months old when we joined much of the world in marching in protest of the Bush administration’s war plans.

My daughter, now age seven, has never known her country to not be at war.

Seven years, tens of thousands of dead people—American, British, Spanish, and especially Iraqi people—and hundreds of billions of debt.

For what?

Don’t answer that.
