Iraq War Blues.

Here, ladies and gentlemen (and those of you who fit neither description), is my annual posting of the link to that gigantic thing that I wrote up when I got arrested five years ago, on the day that the war started.

The idea that we're five years, $600 billion, 3,989 dead US soldiers and over 100,000 Iraqi civilians* into this war, with no signs of stopping, is ... well, let's just say that "disheartening" barely cuts through the icing on the cake, if you know what I mean.
