The definition of insanity

by Brandi Neal

Common Dreams


The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over in the same way and expecting different results. The parallel between Iraqi vets and those of Vietnam is staggering. A study conducted in July reveals that mental illness suffered by soldiers serving in Iraq has reached Vietnam levels and 1 in 4 Marines surveyed reported killing Iraqi civilians while half reported handling human remains.

We obviously haven't learned from the mistakes of the recent past and history is sadly repeating itself. An unjust war, no clear enemy, millions of tax dollars going to a war we don't understand. In Vietnam we were told that it was our duty to stop the spread of communism. Bush says we attacked Iraq to stop the spread of terrorism, but we are again fighting civilians with no clear goal...


The definition of insanity


Sometimes you look at the people Bush appoints to high public office and the only possible response is, 'What were they thinking?' Zalmay Khalilzad for U.S. ambassador to Iraq? Why not just send Richard Perle? Khalilzad is a second-rank neo-con with all the same credentials as the rest of those bozos -- pre-emptive war, world hegemony, Project for a New American Century ... the whole stinking lot of it. Plus, he's been a big booster for Iran's ayatollahs, the Afghani Mujahideen and the Taliban, not to mention an oil company consultant. Isn't that just jim-dandy? What this tells us is that the administration has learned exactly nothing from the past three years of insurgency in Iraq...
