"So what’s the bottom line on the 'liberation of Iraq?' $1 trillion spent. Burning hatred for America across the Muslim world. Animosity in Europe, which warned against Bush’s modern crusade. Huge future expenses to sustain an obedient Iraqi regime while anti-U.S. nationalist sentiment there is boiling. A big boost for Iran’s regional influence. The deaths and wounding of thousands of American servicemen." (11/28/11)

  • Everyone won.

    Or at least, everyone who matters won.

    The US corporations made a bundle. And second, those who filled their offshore bank accounts with graft money. Beyond that, no else even matters.
