Iraq War comes at a huge price
To the editor:
According to some members of the current administration, America invaded Iraq with questionable intelligence and without adequate research of Islamic frame of reference or attention to creditable military advice.
The future now portends a possible civil war, creating a continuing need for American expenditures of money (borrowed from international creditors and the Social Security trust fund) along with the blood of America's finest.
