On March 19, 2003 the American government led us into a horrible prolonged war with Iraq based on total lies, misinformation and hysteria. This week marks the 10th anniversary since the beginning of that war and the toll is bloody and horrible.

Now 58% of the American people feel the War was not worth fighting according to the latest ABC/Washington Post Poll. An amazing 43% feel strongly that it wasn't worth fighting.
56% of the Iraq people now say it was wrong for the United States to invade it and they are worse off.
When Americans were asked if the War contributed to long term security an astounding 83% said NO.
How do you explain to those who lost loved ones that their loss was in vain and caused by their government leading us into an unnecessary war based on untruths?
