Notes From the Fieldby Martin Weil

An Anniversary We Are Trying Hard To Forget

Ten years ago, we invaded Iraq. Funny how little media attention this is receiving. We will be paying off its estimated $3Trillion price tag for a generation or more. The 4500 American soldiers who died and the more than 100,000 Iraqis paid a higher price. I find it hard to put into words my thoughts on the series of decisions led to what is considered one of the worst US foreign policy decisions of the modern era. US media outlets seem as quiet today on the topic of this sad anniversary as they were enthusiastic boosters at its inception. For a painful look back, see the International Herald Tribune.But for the complete painful narrative, the UKs Guardian is the place to turn.
