For George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Colin Powell and the extended cast of actors that brought us the 2003 US invasion of Iraq!

As I recall the quote from then Republican Presidential candidate John McCain in 2008, the US would need to stay in Iraq “for 100 years” before it was stabilized. He was right, of course–although perhaps a tad too optimistic. Understandably, the US public could never support such a sacrifice in lives and lucre, which is why the Obama administration walked through the exit door as quickly as possible, but also why we are witnessing the rapid devolution of Iraq, and who knows what further regional and global atrocities will follow.

And it is also why the arrogance, stupidity and, yes, criminality of the  Bush gang should not have gone unpunished. But I doubt that will ever happen, no matter how high the body count.
I know, nag, nag, nag…
