    We destabilized and wrecked the country.  I just heard last week (I think it was on Dem Now) that over 5000 Iraqis have killed each other just this year, since January, with planted bombs, etc.  I don't remember the number of hundreds to make it 5K plus, but that total was before the 66 killed day before yesterday.

    I do hope the people, like Cheney, who manipulated this fiasco will pay a heavy price for their criminal actions.  That includes Joe Biden who was chair of the Senate Foreign Relations committee during lead up to Shock and Awe.  His committee had hearings on the question of Iraq's WMDs; the folks invited to testify were all U.S. hawks.  I phoned his office and suggested he include some from the opposite persuasion, folks like Scott Ritter, the head weapon's inspector in Iraq, Hans Blix, or von Sponneck.  Nevah happened (sic).  Shortly after this, stories of scandal came out about Scott Ritter.  They didn't want to take a chance Ritter's conclusion that Iraq had no WMDs would be given any credibility.
