As we experience,(not celebrate), the tenth anniversary of the greatest debacle in modern American history, we must hold who created and profited from their criminal malfeasance accountable.While I agree with the original tenants and theme of the original posters message, and many that follow, and cannot help but properly note that the radical right wing nutjobs launched uncounted carnage and sick evil acts of war -
--- i see the left wing democratic president bankrupting the country in his own way, and slowly eliminating freedoms, feeding the electronic beast, setting the stage for use of drones in our own borders etc.
This entire scene sorrows me in 2 ways. In one it is like watching people who are doomed to be stuck in the bitterness of history forever, akin to rednneck monkies waving rebel flags and claiming the South Shall Rise Again, unable to release an issue already past. In the 2nd it is simply a reminder that both Republicans and Democrats alike are stuck in an endless cycle of mindless and futile manipulations - like mentally retarded simians, only able to hear the mindless babble coming from the other side, and never able to recognize their own.
Oh My, they cannot even see that to fight evil begins in there own back yard. Always the wicked see first the evil of others.

* And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
â€œThose who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." (George Santayana)
Already, War Mongers and the War Profiteers seek to "re-invent" history to conceal their perfidy. Rummy recently denied claiming he knew the exact whereabouts of nuclear weapons, or that the War couldn't last more than a few months - even when the video of his making those exact claims was playing in the background.
Liars - Lie; and true patriots must call liars on their lies, or the lie lives on.
While the lies, the prevarications, and the collusions are fresh in our minds, accountability can be had, and the next Vietnam and the next Iraq, avoided by sane and rational thought.
