Can We Dispense with the Idea That Bush Kept America Safe?
Can we please dispense with the idea that Bush kept America safe when his decision to invade Iraq has caused more US deaths than 9/11? From the AP:
As of Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2009, at least 4,229 members of the U.S. military had died in the Iraq war since it began in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.
The figure includes eight military civilians killed in action. At least 3,404 military personnel died as a result of hostile action, according to the military's numbers.
The AP count is the same as the Defense Department's tally, last updated Wednesday at 10 a.m. EST.
In retaliation for the 9/11 Bush let happen in the US, Bush created a 9/11-and-a-half in Iraq. Bush cheerleaders should ask those dead soldiers and the tens of thousands of soldiers wounded how glad they are that Bush kept them safe.
