When is it going to end?

Five years ago, President George W. Bush landed in a fighter jet on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln and announced “mission accomplished” in Iraq.  His showboating should receive a Guinness award as the most foolish press stunt ever.

Five years later, we know different. 

More than 95% of the U.S. troops killed and 98% of troops wounded in Iraq happened after he declared the mission was accomplished.  With almost 50 deaths this month bringing the total to 4051, April was the deadliest in seven months.  The cost of the war has exceeded $525 billion and more than half of the troops in the “coalition of the willing” have pulled out.

On the 5th anniversary of Bush’s declaration of victory, it is beyond time to ask:  When is it going to end? 

John McCain, the Republican Presidential nominee to replace George Bush, says another 100 years is fine with him. 

“He’s just as wrong as Bush.  It’s time for this disastrous war to end,” said ADA National Director Amy Isaacs.
