"When the U.S. government invaded Iraq in 2003, I wonder how many U.S. officials contemplated the possibility that the cycle of death and destruction that they were initiating would be continuing 13 years later. And yet, here we are -- more than a decade after Operation Iraqi Freedom was launched -- and U.S. and Iraqi soldiers are, once again, battling over control of Mosul. The battle for Mosul is being met with considerable indifference or nonchalance among many Americans. After all, there are so many more important things to talk about, such as sex scandals. But the fact that U.S. troops are still fighting, killing, and dying in Iraq 13 years after the U.S. invasion of the country (and 26 years after the U.S. government's Persian Gulf intervention) is truly remarkable."
