The Reality of the Iraq War

According to Iraq Coalition Casualties,

* U.S. has lost 2,641 of our service members in Iraq.
* August 2006, 64 Americans were killed in Iraq.
* Ohio has lost 118 men and women in Iraq.
* 19,323 Americans have been wounded in Iraq.

The war in Iraq is costing us $250,000/day in Iraq. How many schools, hospitals, playgrounds, and roads could have been built if that money had been used here? Why can't this administration admit that it lied to get us into this war? How many more will die for the incompetence and wastes of this administration? If Bush and Rumsfeld had gone after Osama instead of going into Iraq, Osama would have been captured.
