10 Year Anniversary of

U.S. Invasion of Iraq!

     March 19, 2013 will mark the 10th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. The invasion was based on bold faced lies: that Iraq possessed Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs), and that Iraq was linked to the U.S. 9-11 attacks in the U.S. In truth it was an illegal war of aggression for oil and one of many regime changes planned in advance for countries that opposed the U.S. global empire’s interests, countries like Libya, Syria, Iran, etc.

     On Feb. 15, 2003 there were massive protests around the world saying to the U.S. “Don’t Attack Iraq.” Estimates are that between 10 and 30 million people took to the streets in up to 800 cites in 60 countries. Even in Antarctica, dozens of research scientists formed a human peace symbol in the snow.

     Ten years later and what do we have? Wars and more wars – conflict still in Iraq, now a nation destroyed and contaminated with tons of radioactive depleted uranium weapons used by the U.S.; continuing war in Afghanistan, U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, etc.

What have been the costs of war, human and otherwise?


A young boy named Ali, who in the initial “Shock & Awe” U.S. bombing of Baghdad on March 19, 2003, lost both of his arms and was burned over much of his body. 11 of 13 relatives, including his mother and father, were killed in the bombing.

        Cost of war: Numbers of Iraqis slaughtered in U.S. War and occupation of Iraq 1,455,590″

 Number of U.S. Military Personnel Sacrificed (Officially acknowledged) In America’s War On Iraq: 4,883
Number Of  International Occupation Force Troops Slaughtered In Afghanistan : 3,258
