The New York Times (a publication I read regularly) has a page on their site dedicated to Iraq, Afghanistan & the Reach of War. The following is a list of their 6 most recent articles, with their little blurbs. I encourage everyone to read them, but just scanning the headlines you can see just how drastic the situation is Iraq has become, and how the politicking on behalf of both parties is preventing a real, viable solutions from emerging. Its really sad to see that we are incapable of overcoming our individual ideologies to conquer something standing against our collective conscience.

Analysis on War by Andrew Michaels

I have nothing personally against war, war is sometimes necessary to rid
the world of dictators and terrorists. What I find when I evaluate the situation in Iraq is (let me first say, I was against going to war in Iraq for
the very reasons, that Osama Bin Laden hadn’t been brought to justice and
for the very fact that two wars in the same region is idiotic) sadly another
excuse to flex some sort of political machine. This war in Iraq was nothing but some bad dream of revenge, against the attack on 9/11 and those sad
numbers shall plague our country with grief and sorrow until this country
is no more, longer even if we survive global warming. (sorry to change the
subject) This country should have a vote for “no confidence” because I feel
Washington; ie both political parties and the corruption they endearingly
hold onto (do these people think Americans are nothing but stupid, spending money-lending morons) This WAR will and shall cost this country dearly for generations to come. All I want to say to Bush is:
