Five years of war in Iraq

It has been five years since the invasion and ongoing occupation of Iraq and contrary to what some people say, the average American is feeling the effects of this war. We, as a country, are billions of dollars in debt. We have seen the erosion of the American dollar on the world stage. This war has done nothing but cause us trouble on the world stage.
Roughly, 3 trillion dollars has been spent on this war. Meanwhile, our infrastructure is crumbling all around us. Our roads and bridges are not being repaired, or if they are, it is on borrowed money. Our educational is a mess. All wasted on a war against a country that had nothing to do with the attacks on 9/11. All so that President Bush and his friends can get even richer.
Yes, Al-Qaeda is now in Iraq. The only reason that they are there is that there are Americans to kill there. Meanwhile, Afghanistan, where the real threat to our country has been all along is falling back into the hands of the Taliban. The war in Iraq is costing the war in Afghanistan.
