Letter of the Day: Predictable, inevitable

Predictable, inevitable

EDITOR: The unfolding horror in Iraq is the inevitable legacy of the colossally arrogant, hubris-addled Cheney-Bush-Rumsfeld troika. Anyone with even minimal knowledge of Middle Eastern history could have predicted this outcome — as we did, 12 million of us in the world’s streets — on the eve of the disastrous U.S. invasion in 2003. Indeed, the same can be said — and was — of the wars in Vietnam and Afghanistan. The only victors in these hopeless wars are the arms merchants and the Pentagon.
