…and no end in sight. On March 19, 2003, George W. Bush launched the invasion of Iraq. The war was ill-planned, with essentially no effort put into preparing for the post-war era. And now Iraq is the scene of civil war with the U.S. caught in the middle by our own making. Too many people have lost their lives because of this quagmire. All we can do is remember them and work toward ending the war as insurmountable as that seems.
