"NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED"

So we are out of Iraq? So what? It's been a hopeless, helpless cause since day one, the people's voice muted by the war machine and the corporations who profited from it. NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED.

So over ten years later, and the loss of thousands of American lives and many thousands of innocent civilians, and the wounding and maiming of thousands more, theAmerican flag is down.  So what?  What is there to celebrate?

It doesn't feel like a victory.  Far from it.  What did we accomplish? What was it about? This Bush-Cheney-Halliburton war that a few got rich off of, and Obama continued.  Same with Afghanistan. But for the valiant efforts of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to maintain our integrity, we'd be bombed out all over the world, our reputation in tatters, like the flag just lowered in Iraq.   The end of the war? So what?  NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED.
