The Iraq War Is Over....For The Pentagon

The New York Times, the newspaper that helped start the War On Iraq, announces it has come to an end on its online front page :

There is no mention on the front page of the New York Times, at all, of the estimated half-million or more Iraqis who lost their lives during nine years of American Occupation.

That's got to please the Pentagon.

Considering the amount of coverage the Iraq War has been given here, on and off, over the years, I should have a lot to say about this historic day.

But I don't.

We saw what happened when a strand of the American war industry elite decided Iraq had to be destroyed, nothing could stop them, and nothing didn't. They got nine years of war and destruction and world-poverty lifting military budgets.

Do you think it will be any different next time?

Is it, when it comes to War On Iran?

Of course not.

They get the wars they want.

And it's always been this way.
