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!!

Brit 'Iraq War Inquiry': 'Iraq Out & Loud'

Entire Chilcot Report reading to begin at Edinburgh Fringe with readers Ian Rankin,Stewart Lee and Al Murray
8 Aug. 2016 - It will by far the longest single Fringe show of the festival season, a marathon reading of one of the landmark publications of the year by a cast of thousands.

A reading of the Chilcot Report into the UK's entry into the war in Iraq, 2.6m words long, is to be read by more than 2000 people at the festival, reading continuously from beginning to end.

The organisers of the reading are Fringe veterans Bob Slayer and Omid Djalili, inspired by an idea by comedian Boothby Graffoe.

They have approached former Prime Minister Tony Blair, as well as the report's author, Sir John Chilcot, to take part in the mass reading.

Well known readers of the report will include Ian Rankin, Mr Djalili, Stewart Lee, Reg D Hunter, Mark Thomas, Dead Friedman, Tommy Sheppard MP, Jo Caulfield among many others.

The reading starts at 6pm today, Monday August 8, until the end it reached - Mr Slayer thinks it will take two weeks.

Mr Slayer said that the report will be read "straight", and "respectfully, humbly and relentlessly."

The organisers have launched an appeal for more readers to sign up via read more>>>

The world the Iraq war made
August 06, 2016 - With the land of the two rivers, Iraq and Syria, now a wasteland of human suffering and rubble, the Report of the Iraq Inquiry, commonly known as the Chilcot report (after its chairman, Sir John Chilcot), has aimed to help explain how we got here. Now that it has detailed the extent of British culpability in the 2003 American-led invasion of Iraq, those implicated in the report's findings are using two arguments to refute it.

The first, offered by former Prime Minister Tony Blair, that the world would be much worse today had Iraqi President Saddam Hussein been left in power. The second is that invading Iraq would have succeeded but for a lack of post-invasion planning, which allowed for the mayhem that followed.

The second argument has some truth to it. But the first argument is surely false – a desperate attempt at reputation management by those responsible for a disastrous decision. read more>>>

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

The Country ran from any and all Accountability, Domestically and Internationally, throughout but especially as the Bush regime was leaving, even allowing it's rubber stamping conservative congresses to maintain control and then take over, states included, as Extremely quickly as they did the Missions and those sent to Accomplish after 9/11!! Leaving everything they did and twisted leagalities, making lawful that which the US had led the World in making unlawfull, to do on the table!!

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!!

Brit Report into Iraq War will Be Published in June or July 2016

* * * 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>>>

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!
