five years

Today marks the 5th year that American troops have been in Iraq because of lies perpetuated by the bush administration. Salon.com has an article contrasting the speeches between two Senators entitled, “Today I weep for my country.” The editors note:

Exactly five years ago, on the afternoon of March 19, 2003, mere hours before bombs began falling in Baghdad, Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., gave a speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate condemning the use of military force in Iraq. As soon as Byrd was finished speaking, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., delivered a response defending the Bush administration’s decision to go to war.

It is worth a read. Meanwhile, back in February of that year, thousands of people all over the world had protests marches to stop the inevitable carnage. This slide presentation is from the New York City rally.
