Over and over I recall the voices of the past telling me that the Iraq invasion was important because Saadam is/was a ruthless dictator who tortured people. I remain frustrated that those same voices, the voices who supported W's evil war, now remain silent. Are they not let down by the numerous revelations that W is, in fact, engaged and associated with torture styles as horrific as those used by Saadam? Now that the basis for the war has been proven false and over 100,000 Iraqi civilians , 428 US contractors and 2281 US and coalition troops have been killed , doesn't that body pile count for a tragedy certainly as gruesome as those committed by Saadam? The irony of the US committing torture in Saadam's torture prison! Have we become the enemy? How could we let this happen! Where are those voices that supported the invasion and continue to haunt? How do they breathe?

How many more will have to die? Here is a powerpoint/video presentation that asks the same question. It takes a little while to get into it, but then, the impact is strong.

I just couldn't resist posting the above image of W. This is our so-called, 'leader' making a 'W-style,' dignified impression in China. Found it posted in 2 places: Today in Iraq and Daily Kos.
