In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

Publish Iraq War Inquiry Results or Face Sack

Chilcot evidence must be released now, insist Lib Dems
Tim Farron says delays in publication of report into Iraq war risk accusations of an establishment stitch-up

25 April 2015 - The Liberal Democrats have broken ranks with the other main parties to call for evidence submitted to the Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war to be published immediately.

In a move that threatens to make the Iraq invasion an election issue, the party’s foreign affairs spokesman, Tim Farron, said new delays in the long-awaited publication of the inquiry’s report may lead to fear of a “stitch-up”.

The move will be seen in some circles as a calculated attempt by the Lib Dems to embarrass the Tories and Labour, who supported the invasion. It also taps into widespread frustration the report has been repeatedly delayed. It emerged last week that publication may now be delayed until next year while those who are facing criticism, including Tony Blair, his foreign secretary, Jack Straw, and the then head of MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove, are given the chance to respond. read more>>>

Peer tells Chilcot to publish Iraq report or face sack
26 April 2015 - SIR JOHN CHILCOT should be forced to produce a report on the findings of his inquiry into the war in Iraq or be replaced, Lord Morris, Tony Blair’s first attorney-general, has said.

Morris said it was “monstrous” that the families of killed and injured servicemen and women now face waiting until next year for the long-awaited publication. The independent inquiry got under way in 2009 and was supposed to deliver its findings by the end of 2011.

Morris, a QC and a Labour peer, said the “uninhibited independence” granted to the inquiry had not worked and whoever is in power after the election should get parliamentary approval to force Chilcot’s hand. read more>>>

What Gallipoli can teach the UK about the Iraq war
Many of the conclusions of the Dardanelles inquiry are likely to be echoed in the Chilcot inquiry into the 2003 invasion of Iraq, now not expected to be published until next year, seven long years after it was set up.

April 25, 2015 - A hundred years ago on Saturday, tens of thousands of allied troops, led by Australians and New Zealanders, landed on the Gallipoli peninsula, on the northern bank of the Dardanelles in Turkey. The plan, devised by Winston Churchill, was to capture Istanbul and give Russia, an ally in the First World War as in the Second, protected access to the Mediterranean.

On 25 April, named Anzac Day after the first action by the new joint Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, wreaths will be laid, and songs sung, in memory of the large number of casualties in a military disaster blamed squarely on British commanders. read more>>>

* * * Iraq War Promoted Terrorism Rather Than Reducing It * * *
24 April 2014 - Britain’s involvement in the Iraq War promoted terrorism rather than reducing it and was a “strategic failure”, according to a major new report which estimated the cost of all UK conflicts since the end of the Cold War.
The Royal United Services Institute said the UK could face a bill of nearly £65bn, once the cost of long-term care for injured veterans was factored in, with most of the money was spent on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The study, called Wars in Peace, said both conflicts were largely “strategic failures” for the UK, The Guardian reported."

Facts: Matthew Hoh {former Marine and foreign service officer in Afghanistan}: "We spend a trillion dollars a year on national security in this country."
"And when you add up to the Department of Defense, Department of State, CIA, Veterans Affairs, interest on debt, the number that strikes me the most about how much we're committed financially to these wars and to our current policies is we have spent $250 billion already just on interest payments on the debt we've incurred for the Iraq and Afghan wars." 26 September 2014

Bob Herbert "Losing Our Way" : "And then the staggering costs of these wars, which are borne by the taxpayers. I mean, one of the things that was insane was that, as we're at war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Bush administration cut taxes. This has never been done in American history. The idea of cutting taxes while you're going to war is just crazy. I mean, it's madness." Bill 'Moyers and Company': Restoring an America That Has Lost its Way 10 Oct. 2014

$14 Million An Hour: War Costs Top $1.6 Trillion Since 9/11, Say Congressional Researchers
December 22 2014 - American taxpayers have shelled out roughly $1.6 trillion on war spending since 9/11, according to a new report from Congress’ nonpartisan research arm. That’s roughly $337 million a day -- or nearly a quarter million dollars a minute -- every single day for 13 years. read more>>>

“With no shared sacrifices being asked of civilians after Sept. 11"

Chris Hayes MSNBC: "If you can run a deficit to go to war, you can run a deficit to take care of the people who fought it" In response to Republican opposition to expanding Veterans' benefits on fiscal grounds

Neither of these recent wars have yet been paid for, let alone the results from, including the long ignored or outright denied existence of, till this Administrations Cabinet and Gen Shinseki, only Government branch consistent for the past six years, issues! As well as under deficits most of the, grossly under funded, VA budget is still borrowed thus added, problem creating, costs that shouldn't exist!
