Is America awakening from stupor about Iraq?
COULD it be the country is beginning to emerge from its Bush-induced stupor? Has the spin master Karl Rove run out of smoke and mirrors?

Recent polls and the large anti-war marches over the weekend suggest Americans are finally rejecting the ever-changing rationale for a war that has claimed the lives of more than 1,900 U.S. soldiers and more than 40,000 Iraqis (estimated by the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva, Switzerland). <snip>

In a recent Gallup poll, 55 percent said they are in favor of speeding up the withdrawal of troops from Iraq the largest number expressing disapproval of the war since it started.

The skyrocketing economic costs are also impossible to ignore. In the first nine months of the year, the average monthly cost of the war was $5.6 billion. Through June, the war will have cost $154 billion. <snip> http://www.insidebayarea.com/oaklandtribune/payton/ci_3...

1. We certainly have a lot to show for our $154 Billion investment
in Iraq.

When I think about what Bush has done to this country I feel the urge to strangle the nearest Republican I can find.
