Counting the cost of Iraq War and A Politician who was right about Iraq War

Two stories with thanks from Mr. Phil Ebersole’s Blog

I am pleased to share two stories by Mr. Phil Ebersole without any comment.

This is what Obama said in October 2002 when he was a Senator:

“I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a U.S. occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences.”

“I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the Middle East, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaeda.”

This is what the spokesman of Bush said:

“The invasion of Iraq was going to be a cakewalk, and the cost would be paid out of Iraq oil revenues.”

And now look at:

A Look at the War’s Human, Financial, and Strategic Costs

After reading all this is there anything left to say?

The answer is that there is nothing more precious than a human life. Material cost of war is of no importance.

THE COST OF LIFE, IRRESPECTIVE OF THE CONSIDERATION OF WHOSE LIFE IT IS, A CHRISTIAN, A JEW, A HINDU OR A MUSLIM, DEFINITELY IS OF PRIME IMPORTANCE.

After all they are all human beings and belong to the same family as sons and daughters of Adam and Eve.

I wish and pray that we try to understand and always keep that in mind for making the world a better place to live!

LOVE TO ALL — MALICE TO NONE!
