It has killed hundreds of thousands of people, destroyed the infrastructure of an entire country and cost taxpayers billions of dollars. And now, in the words of a US intelligence report which Bush wanted to bury:
"The Iraq conflict has become the 'cause celebre' for jihadists, breeding a deep resentment of US involvement in the Muslim world. If this trend continues, threats to US interests at home and abroad will become more diverse, leading to increasing attacks worldwide."
Save from a few, deranged, inhabitants of Planet Neo-Con, is there anyone out there still willing to justify this wretched war?
UPDATE: I've scanned several pro-war blogs today and the US intelligence report doesn't get a mention. How interesting......
