Excellent piece by Tom Brokaw:
The "War Protesters" don't care now, BUSH IS GONE.
As time marches on we, as a nation, completely become desensitized to the impact on our economy, our warriors and collective society...
Give peace a chance...
Maybe the electorate realizes that these wars have a purpose?
The cynic in me says that Harry is right. Some people are used to it, some people are what Brokaw says, not directly or barely involved, some people think we're headed in the right direction but I think the majority of people just used it as a disingenuous political weapon to hammer at the right with.
Edit: I'm not saying genuine criticism for the wars weren't warranted, I'm just saying they're suspect because they disappeared once Bush did. These wars should be a factor in this election
Slightly off target by the NYT depends on opinion I guess ... the Iraq war officially started during the Clinton years. I was kind of surprised when i learned that some time ago. it started with the Gulf War 1990-1991. Then 1991 - 2003 was the no-fly zone war. Then 2003 the Iraq war.
The reason I say this is because that's a ton of money ... 1990 to present war in that region which makes it 20+ years of war.

some good links here ... the guy does a decent job.
You read this page and you realize how fugged up our world is ...
if there's a creator they are sadistic through and through.
The wars are now "Obama Wars" and good God almighty we don't want to say anything to put Beautiful Barry in the same bag as The Hated Bush.
