I would like to take this opportunity to celebrate out the 4th Anniversary of Mission Accomplished in the Iraq War on May 1. Not only is it the 83rd birthday of my father, a decorated veteran of 3 Wars, it is also the day that America declared victory in Iraq.
To think that I and many of my friends were sceptical about this war before it began and as it went on. We really thought America was doing the wrong thing and would get stuck into a situation that would take months to get out of, at the cost of hundreds of American lives and thousands of Iraqi lives. Again, my friends and I were wrong and can see that. We did not fully appreciate Bush's declaration of victory at the time.
So, Happy Anniversary to All
