On the tenth anniversary of the American invasion of Iraq (March, 2003), numerous articles appears in the American mass media reflecting on the biggest blunders committed in the history of the U.S. by the Bush administration. The few people who were concerned about American national interest predicted this tragedy.
However, the major newspapers of the media began to dance to the tune of music set by the Bush administration and the lobbyists representing those who would benefit from the invasion of Iraq.
The American congress, which Harry Reid described as the most corrupt in the history of the U.S., supported the invasion without examining any evidence in support of the war.
The consequences of the invasion reflect some serious problems, such as:
1) The cost of the war to American taxpayers has been estimated to exceed $2.5 trillion. All of this money was borrowed from foreign governments, especially China. It was a war that was fought on credit cards.
2) More than 4,500 American soldiers were killed in vain and an additional 32,000 were injured. In addition to the negative psychological and emotional impact of the war on veterans is reflected in—among other things—high suicide rates, at almost one per day.
3) The negative impact of the war in Iraq has been disastrous to humans, as well as environmentally, politically, and economically. Literally speaking, Iraq was destroyed. The U.S. government put it on a silver platter and turned it over to Iran.
The tragedy is that no one has been tried for these blunders, including Bush and his criminal gang. The U.S. political system is filled with loopholes, which encourages politicians to lie and mislead the public without consequences for this deception.
