At the Close of the Day

Today marked the 5th Anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq and one of the best summaries on the meaning of this day came from Robert Fisk of the Independent.

In his article, "The only lesson that we ever learn is that we never learn" Fisk states:

"Today, we are engaged in a fruitless debate. What went wrong? How did the people – the senatus populusque Romanus of our modern world – not rise up in rebellion when told the lies about weapons of mass destruction, about Saddam's links with Osama bin Laden and 11 September? How did we let it happen? And how come we didn't plan for the aftermath of war? "
