5th anniversary of the Iraq War

It's already been five years now - far longer than the honorable struggle against fascism in World War II.

And the fact remains that this was a war of personal vendettas and paybacks to powerful contractors, not about making America safer.

There have been many events to mark the anniversary and renew calls to stop the war. I haven't been able to participate, however.

When the war was about to start, Matthew Carnicelli of Human Potential Left (and also of Democracy Cell Project) wrote an open letter to W, telling him that he drop his personal obsession with Saddam, and that his attention better be focused on the real threat - Korea (North in this case), with real nukes capable of taking out a major US city.
