Iraq outlay sinks to new depths as unrecoverable sunk cost

Yahoo news uploaded 11 minutes ago. Nine more GIs no longer get to vote in any up coming elections.


BAGHDAD, Iraq - A roadside bomb killed seven U.S. soldiers in northwest Baghdad and two Marines were killed in western Iraq on Thursday, the deadliest day for American forces since a suicide attack on a U.S. base last month.

End slice:

Just wondering: At what point do we decide as a country - comprised of god fearing, moral individuals - that it is morally reprehensible and unthinkable that more lives are lost in an already lousy situation?

WMD? Nope.

Ties before the invasion/liberation to Al Queda? Nope.

Lies to get us there? Yup!

Home to terrorists of all stripes now? You bettter believe it!

Ahh, but the vote must go on.

I am starting to sound like a broken record - not like folks today have any sense (or recollection) of what a broken record is - but, again, the ROI for Iraq is simply and outrageously not worth the outlay.
