Its our anniversary!

Today marks five years in Iraq.

Is this where we thought we'd be five years into this?

Approximately $720 million dollars are spent daily.

This war could cost the American people $1.2 trillion dollars in the end.

We could have ended extreme world poverty by now. We could have done a lot with what we've spent on the war thus far. (Check this out for a perspective on money and the war.)

I'm not looking for comments on this (I'd encourage more conversation on the previous two posts). But I didn't think there would be a Hallmark card for this one, so I just wanted to say: "Happy Anniversary." I hope we all pray for an end to this...
