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!!

Iraq War Inquiry: 'Chilcot One-Month Ultimatum'

Iraq families give Chilcot one-month ultimatum after all those criticised in his report responded meaning he has no excuse not to set a date
14 September 2015 - Bereaved families of British soldiers killed in Iraq will today give Sir John Chilcot a final ultimatum to publish his long-delayed report.

Now that all those criticised in the document have responded, the Iraq inquiry chairman has no excuse not to fix a date for its release, they say.

And they have demanded he announce this date within a month.

Parents desperate to learn the truth about why Tony Blair sent UK troops to fight in the disastrous 2003 conflict said they were being denied ‘an end to our suffering’. So far, the inquiry has taken six years and cost the taxpayer £10million.

Last week, retired civil servant Sir John said the convention allowing witnesses a pre-publication right of reply – a process known as ‘Maxwellisation’ – had finally been completed.

However, he claimed it was impossible to set a timetable for releasing the report because he must evaluate the ‘detailed and substantial’ submissions from respondents – including Mr Blair, military chiefs and civil servants. The families have now sent Sir John an open letter warning they will ‘not go away’ read more>>>

Sir John Chilcot accused of showing 'contempt' for soldiers' families
14 September 2015 - Relatives of British soldiers killed in Iraq have launched a scathing attack on the chairman of the Iraq inquiry as they warned they will press ahead with legal action if he fails to publish the report by the end of the year.

Sir John Chilcot treated families who have lost loved ones with "contempt" and acted with "astonishing" hypocrisy, the group claimed.

Lawyers representing group of relatives of 29 soldiers killed in the conflict had previously given the chairman a deadline, which expired last month, to set out a timetable for the Maxwellisation process that allows witnesses to respond to criticism before publication of the report.

The group has put its legal action on hold following Sir John's announcement that the process has now been completed but warned it will go to the High Court if plans to publish the inquiry findings by December are not set out.

"We write to you today to inform you that, in the absence of any reasonable, transparent and full explanation why you cannot, we expect you to write to the Prime Minister within one month with a date for publication, which should be by the end of the year," they wrote.

"Again, any date beyond that must be fully justified. By your own admission, now Maxwellisation is over, there is nothing to prevent you doing this. If you fail to do so, we will continue with our legal challenge." read more>>>

"It's a shame Brian Williams will be the only person ever punished for lying about Iraq"

And now Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after the Whole Country Abandoned the Missions and those sent to Accomplish, and still haven't paid for either nor the long term results from and that includes the VA their responsibility, so extremely quickly after 9/11!!

* * * 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!
