An Illegal Immoral War

Too often when we discuss deaths in Iraq, we forget how many Iraqi civilians are dying in this godawful war. The NYT reports that the U.N. estimates that "nearly 6,000 civilians were killed in May and June as sectarian violence surged across Iraq, an announcement that was underscored by a suicide bombing that killed 53 people and wounded more than 100 in the Shiite city of Kufa today. . . . But the report released today by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq estimates that the death toll day in and day out for the last two months has averaged about 100. Many of the dead were found individually or in small groups, often bound and showing signs of torture before execution."

Why did we invade Iraq again?
