Editorial: 16 years

Despite promises and hopes and protests and demands and costs financial and costs in blood, the Iraq War hits the 16 year mark in about an hour.

16 years going and no end in sight.

If you're running for president right now, you might try articulating how this war ends because, thus far, it doesn't.

Happy birthday, Iraq war. You’re old enough to drive now.

16 years.  And now it's going to be 16 years and counting.

How can you run for president and not address this issue?

You can't.  Not if you want us to take you seriously.

So far, US House Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is the strongest.

  1. “So you ask what I will change? I will change our priorities so we stop wasting trillions of our dollars on wasteful counterproductive wars and dedicate them to taking care of the urgent needs of our communities across this country.”

The Iraq War has to end.  If you can't figure out how to make that happen, you shouldn't be running for president.
