Iraq War - Entirely Negative or Even Terrible!

The GOP Hawks are gearing up for another Presidential run in 2016. You'd think they'd be too ashamed to even try, but of course, that's not how it works around here.

And they are all grappling with the recent past: The Iraq War. Bush's war of choice, or as some of us call it, Bush's debacle. There should be a reckoning, but the Right's powers of hard-headed denial are prodigious and reality-defying.

Here's Josh Marshall on Iraq today: "If the Iraq War was a mistake it was a mistake of gargantuan proportions. It went on for roughly a decade and in some ways continues. Thousands of Americans were killed. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis died if you figure in the costs of the insurgency, the invasion and various collateral effects of both. And it is difficult to argue that its effects weren't largely or entirely negative or even terrible."

And that's putting it mildly!
