60 Iraqis Killed Yesterday

It is Friday in Iraq. Yesterday, 60 Iraqis were killed as a result of violence. These were deaths that would not have occurred had the US not belligerently and aggressively invaded. The invasion was, and the occupation is, unjustified by national security prerogatives.

There was no WMD in Iraq prior to the invasion. There was no insurgency, no "al-quaeda," and no terrorism. Iraq did not pose a threat to US national security.

The occupation is making the US less safe from global terrorism by fanning the flames of anti-USA sentiment around the world.

Here's a link to a story from Washingtonpost.com about the violence in Iraq and the potential for national collapse.
