End the War

From the Nation:
The war has also become the single greatest threat to our national security. Its human and economic costs are spiraling out of control, with no end in sight. It has driven America's reputation in the world to a historic low point. In the meantime, real threats suffer terrible neglect. These include more terrorist attacks, jeopardized oil supplies, rising tension with China, the spread of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction and even natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina. All are pushed aside as this Administration pours the country's blood, treasure and political energy into a futile war. In short, ending the Iraq War is the most pressing issue facing America today. Until it is ended, a constructive national security policy cannot be forged.

Where is Paul Wolfowitz right now? Has he tried to keep count of how many Americans have died in Iraq? Why are we still there? Why are the Administration and the Republicans so frightened about an investigation into why we went into Iraq, and who made sure we ended up there?

Wolfie's at the World Bank these days. He's institutionally not required to thinnk about casualties anymore.

I know -- it was more a rhetorical question -- but I wonder what he's plotting these days. Is he still wearing those stupid "boots on the ground" boots, I wonder?
