Ten years ago this week, the United States invaded Iraq, a country that had done us no harm other than having a nasty dictator, and usually the U.S. has had no problem tolerating nasty dictators: quite often, they are our allies.
But bush and cheney, the theoretical heads of the free world at the time, needed to invade somebody. After all, we had been terrorized on 9/11/01 and there was no winning to be had in Afghanistan, so let's invade a country that had nothing to do with 9/11 and then sell it to the revenge-seeking American public as somehow connected.
It was a criminal act. Many thousands of people, including more Americans than were killed on 9/11, died as a result of their lies. These men, bush and cheney, as well as their accomplices, should still be held accountable for crimes against humanity. Instead they roam the world in blissful retirement, seemingly oblivious to the destruction of their direct making.
