Last thought on the War in Iraq

I'll soon take down the dead civilian counter. I'm glad that “we” “won” the war in Iraq and that the pace of death has slowed somewhat. A month, six thousand or so bodies, twenty billion dollars later, “liberation.” Candid fear: that the protestors fearing a war on Islam are correct, that Syria is next, in time for the election, that Iran will follow, that terror and the war in dread will become givens, that Bush will be reelected on a promise of fiscal irresponsibility serving the rich, that the economy will remain stagnant, that libraries will close and art programs will fall like cut daisies, that the aughts will be remembered for the closing of the American mind and the flush last days of the American empire.
