We have been in Iraq for 1,000 days now. This is a nice, round number, one that encourages reflection. G.W. has been reflecting too, finally admitting that US stup–, intelligence was faulty. We have [at least] 30,000 Iraqi citizens dead. Let’s put that in its proper context: that’s equivalent to an overcrowded classroom being exterminated everyday for over 3 1/2 years. We have [as of today] 2,140 American soldiers killed. Again, put that into proper context: a set of parents a day.
Let’s review my last 1,000 days:
- Graduated from college with 2 degrees
- Got a job
- Started a blog
- Ran HEADS
- Started a Web Design Business
- Bought a condo
I haven’t led to the untimely death of anyone. Maybe I should be President. Then > 30K would at least be alive. Let’s pray we’re not in Iraq for another 1K days.
