Finally people are asking real questions about the failed Iraq War

Iraq War failures are too numerous to report. In fact, it's difficult to grasp how so many US defense failures could continue, even compounded, without demanding accountability from Congressional committees.

As a result of these failures, the body counts in the casualities of the Iraq War are reported in numerous websites.

Estimates of the casualties from the conflict in Iraq since 2003 (beginning with the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, and the ensuing occupation and insurgency) have come in many forms, and the accuracy of the information available on different types of Iraq War casualties varies greatly.

Scientific surveys of Iraqi deaths resulting from the first four years of the Iraq War found that between 151,000 to over one million Iraqis died as a result of conflict during this time. A later study, published in 2011, found that approximately 500,000 Iraqis had died as a result of the conflict since the invasion. Counts of deaths reported in newspapers collated by projects like the Iraq Body Count project found 174,000 Iraqis reported killed between 2003 and 2013, with between 112,000-123,000 of those killed being civilian noncombatants.

Now, it's possible the voters will finally asks the questions that our US media and the Congress were simply too afraid to ask.

1. Why did President George Bush 41 disregard the advice of Norman Schwarzkopf and invade Baghdad,  when he had an open road into the city and the citizens were hailing the Americans as conquering heroes?

2.  Why did President George Bush 43 create a myth about Iraq harboring weapons of mass destruction as a premise to invade a sovereign nation?

3.  Why did the Americans allow the Iraqi Kurds to be massacred after they revolted against President Saddam Hussein?

4.  Why is it the American tax payers have funded untold billions of dollars to build the peace in Iraq and Afghanistan, while our Congress defunds our public schools, universities, health  care and ignore the crumbling state of our national infrastructure?

And the list could continue.....but four questions in one blog is really all any questioner would need to determine clear and convincing evidence of the Iraq failures.

Meanwhile, American voters are finally asking the questions that were, for too long, ignored by the US media and our Congress.

The Iraq War was a failure. Americans lost this war. Indeed, we're even loosing what was gained by US military treasure, because the coward Iraqi army are incompetent when challenged to defend their own nation against the take over by evil-ISIS extremists.

It was George Bush 41 and his son George Bush 43 who created the synergistic Iraq failures. There's no point in creating a trifecta of failures regarding this international fiasco.  

Let's let the American voters ask Jeb Bush to account for his father's and his brother's failures. Obviously, American doesn't want yet another failed Bush administration policy to lead our nation.  Voters will have the courage to demand accountability for the Iraqi War failures.
