the United States has been involved in the Iraq War for as long as we were involved in World War II. The difference? At this point in WWII, we knew we were on our way to winning.
How much longer are we committed to this blunder? How many more soldiers and innocent citizens will die for the wealth of politicians and businessmen? 2,500 U.S. soldiers so far. Number of Iraqi citizens? Tens of thousands. Why one more?

We have the capability to think critically, to act rationally, and seek knowledge to better ourselves. Let’s start today!
