What 5 Years Means
A note from Leslie Cagan:
In a little over a month, the U.S. will have been occupying Iraq for 5 years. It's hard to believe.
when looking at the awful numbers -- more than 1 million Iraqis and
nearly 4,000 U.S. servicepeople killed, 2 million Iraqis living as
refugees in other countries, with another 2.5 million displaced within
Iraq, more than 1 trillion dollars spent -- I find it difficult to
grasp what 5 years really means. What is the full sum of the
destruction and suffering that has taken place? And what does it mean
for the future of our country and our world?
CALL TO ACTION
March 19, 2008: the 5th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the beginning of the 6th year of war and occupation, the 6th year of senseless death and massive destruction.
Help us make the 5th anniversary the last anniversary of this
