Iraq War Day

Today marks the eighth anniversary of the American invasion of Iraq.   We have been at war in Iraq for eight years now.   Isn't it time to end our wars and take care of our own country?  Our health care, education, social programs all suffer because we spend our national wealth on warfare.

When was the last time America was invaded?   Why do we need to be at war all the time.   Why does America spend more on weapons and our defense department than all the rest of the countries in the world combined?   Why do we have 700 military bases all over the world? We are bankrupting our children's future for no acceptable reason.

We had a gathering in Corvallis today to remember.   Here are a couple pictures I took this afternoon.

Saddam Hussein is long gone.  There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.  Why are we still there?
