50,000 Hits and the End of a War

It's sort of a neat coincidence that the day I reach 50,000 total hits on Christian Fearing God-Man also happens to be the day that the U.S. has formally declared an end to the Iraq War.

I, for one, am fairly happy about this.  Hopefully the men and women coming home won't have to turn right back around just to go to Afghanistan.  With the war over, maybe now our budget deficit will be a little lower without having to spend so much on Iraq.

I hope against hope that Iraq can become a stable and prosperous nation.  The Iraqi people have spent a long time under the yoke of opression and tyranny, so it would be nice if they can work together for a bright future.

It was a bloody and controversial conflict, but we should all respect those who served and supported the efforts, and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom of the Iraqi people.

Congrats, Jack!

Unfortunately, the bill for the Iraq war will continuing mounting for the foreseeable future. Remember, we borrowed to pay for that war. the wealthy couldn't even be bothered to pay for it.

Don't worry Iraq will soon turn to shit and it will all have been a huge waste of time, lives, and money.

The war on poverty was ten time the cost of the Iraq war, and we're still in it, and we're losing...
