We paid a far higher price in the Korean War (36,000 dead). Few would have thought in 1953 that this war was a raging success.
Six decades later, South Korea has become one of the most prosperous and freest countries in the world.
Can anyone argue South Koreans aren't grateful for the sacrifices we made for their freedom?

In 2011, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the U.S. commitment to the democratic future of Iraq remained strong despite the withdrawal of American troops by the end of the year.
"Even as our troops come home, the United States' commitment to Iraq's future as a secure, stable, democratic nation remains as strong as ever," she said at a news conference in the Tajik capital. "This will end the war and it will open a new chapter in our relationship."
...Just wish Obama had said that.
O'Reilly had to use a crow bar during his interview with him in 2008 just to get him to admit the surge was a success.

Maybe you should bone up on the Korean War a bit Carol. BTW the First Cav alone lost over 3800 dead with over 12,000 wounded in Korea.

Barham Salih hardly sounds like an impartial source.
Yes, perhaps Hussein killed 1/2 million to 1 million Iraqis.
The U.S. attack and occupation directly or indirectly contributed to an equal number of fatalities. Many Iraqis fled to Syria, because conditions under the Coalition were so terrible. Adding to the misery was the often brutal treatment meted out to Iraqi prisoners suspected of insurgent activity, often people who were rounded up in random dragnets.
The situation in Iraq today is still considered nightmarish. Paramilitary units created by the military and CIA and now employed as "security forces" for the U.S.-created regime continue to brutalize the population. To some extent, it's like Hussein never left.
As for your charge that Democrats wanted Hussein removed, that was back in 1998 when the U.N. inspectors made it known they had doubts on Iraqi compliance. The Clinton economic sanctions successfully forced Hussein to buckle under. The Bush administration then falsely presented the case four years later that Iraq had reneged once again. But as we all know, no WMDs were found.
There is no need to "re-examine" Bush and Cheney's war by lies. It was launched under a false pretext and prosecuted in brutal fashion as demonstrated by Abu Ghraib and numerous incidents involving Blackwater security.
So go rewrite your pro-GOP history somewhere else.

The Willful Blindness of Bush Loyalists
....Even if the overall Bush record werent so poor, one of the GOPs problems is that no one outside their party perceives it that way. However, the main problem is that the record really was that poor and many Republicans refuse to accept that. After all, admitting that Bushs presidency was a disastrous one is to admit that they supported the disaster, and thats not something that anyone likes admitting....
the Left has it right.

The Iraq war was a product of excessive fear and fear-mongering. Its architects may have had delusional, optimistic schemes for regional democratic transformation, but a lot of its supporters backed the invasion because their government had terrified them with the prospect of nuclear terrorist attacks that might follow if there were no war.
....Despite living in an unusually secure and powerful country, Americans are just as susceptible as any other nation to the demagoguery of politicians that exaggerate and invent foreign threats. It may be that our secure position in the world has spoiled us. When an attack does occur, there is a tendency to overreact because suffering foreign attacks has been so unusual in our history. Oddly enough, we are accustomed to being very secure, and yet our foreign policy debate ceaselessly obsesses over the most remote and manageable foreign threats.

Are they Obama's?
What is Pakistan's role in the targeting?
Are the civilian death/injury totals grandly exaggerated as a way of plucking more foreign aid from US coffers?
Former president Musharraf was taken back into custody, the Pakistani judicial system is at odds with it's army.
To answer your question__the drone strikes against known terrorists are necessary and then justifiable.

Rupert Murdoch defends the New York Posts horrendous coverage and those photos of the young Moroccan immigrant kid.
There were a number of journalistic goofs this week the big one being the numerous erroneous reports of an arrest on Wednesday that never happened. The Post thing actually wasnt a journalistic failing, it was an ethical one. Theyre different.

An Iraqi who is one of the survivors of the torture chambers and who is the chairman of the board of the American University of Iraq in Sulaimani which provides a liberal education in a place where this would have been unheard of 10 years ago is, I would think, quite a credible source.
Pelosi said Bush lied. She also said the CIA lied.
Don't you think she would be considered the less impartial source?
