The Worst Mistake in U.S. History

America Will Never Recover from Bush's Great Foreign Policy Disaster  

       Ten years ago, George Bush made a decision that this country will regret for a very long time.
"Not to put too fine a point on it, but the invasion of Iraq turned out to be a joke. Not for the Iraqis, of course, and not for American soldiers, and not the ha-ha sort of joke either. And here’s the saddest truth of all: on March 20th as we mark the 10th anniversary of the invasion from hell, we still don’t get it. In case you want to jump to the punch line, though, it’s this: by invading Iraq, the U.S. did more to destabilize the Middle East than we could possibly have imagined at the time. And we -- and so many others -- will pay the price for it for a long, long time."
A mistake for the nation, a mistake for the Middle East, a mistake for the world.
It's a great read.  Americans would do well to familiarize themselves with it so more of us learn what we did, so we also learn better where we are now because of it.
And why we need to make sure we don't let this or anything like it happen again.
