Now they want us involved again, due to troops not being trained efficiently , low morale and a general inability to handle the conflict. 25 billion , 4486 American soldiers lives, isn't that enough invested?

Perhaps if our Govt would not have been in such a hurry to bail and instead make sure training was done right and any threats were gone instead of worrying about ratings. Sometimes the easy way isn't the right way.

since people keep mentioning this number of US soldiers killed, I want to point out that due to the use of radioactive weapons and chemical weapons more than 400,000 civilians were killed by the US in Iraq. So if some of them are a bit pissed off I don't blame them

Perhaps you should view it this way, the Americans that volunteered to fight their war, and died had no hand in the wrongs that was happening there. War always has high civilian casualties, it is a ugly fact of war. Your comments bring back to mind the names screamed at the Vietnam Vets when they were called " baby killer at the end of that war.

I'm not blaming the soldiers even though they volunteered to be there, the government propaganda was so intense as it always is when someone wants to start a war. I just felt that it's important to remember the dead and almost all the dead in Iraq were civilians.

Wow, it's almost like America's involvement in Iraq from the get go had absolutely nothing to do with improving the lives of Iraqis.

It was about money. Mostly enriching Cheney's Halliburton. We not only can't win in hellholes like Iraq and Afghanistan, what is there to win?

The war will actually end up costing $3 trillion when you factor in the expense of medical care for veterans. A complete waste of money and lives for a reckless, I'll-conceived, unnecessary, and bungled operation. We should spend no more money on Iraq.
