More Chaos in Iraq as Civil War Continues

Iraq is seeing the most Chaos since 2003, when the ground invasion began.

At least 11 soldiers died on Wednesday, Oct. 18th alone, during one of the bloodiest months for U.S. troops in Iraq.

The response from Bush & Co. ? (as if I needed to ask)... "Stay The Course". More of the same nonsense from rich white men who never served in battle.

Meanwhile, 11 U.S. soldiers have been singled out for Court Martials for murdering Iraqis....including the brutal rape and murder of an Iraqi girl. The suspects killed the girls entire family and burned the bodies in an effort to cover up the crime. Some of the soldiers are facing the death penalty.

Iraqis are also fleeing their homes by the thousands, in an effort to get away from the violence. About 50,000 Iraqis are fleeing their homes every month! Some are becoming internally displaced within Iraq, and others are fleeing to neighboring countries such as Jordan and Syria, creating a humanitarian nightmare for the region.

U.S. troops are also paying a big price and suffer long after they return home. Approximately 1 in 5 U.S. soldiers are becoming casualties of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Disability claims are growing fast.
