Today marks five years since the beginning of the illegal preemptive attack, occupation and now quagmire of Iraq. According to Iraq body count as of this posting 82,249 - 89,760 civilian deaths have been documented and 3992 U.S. Soldiers have been killed according to Iraq casualty count.
Over the weekend the Winter Soldier Hearings took place in Washington D.C. except for KPFA Radio there was an almost complete mainstream media blackout of the event. Hundreds of active and non-active duty U.S. Soldiers took part in telling their stories of atrocity's and horrors of the Iraq war and military life, It was divided into seven panels which you can listen to all linked here:
> Rules of engagement pt1, pt2,
> The crisis in veterans health care,
> Corporate pillaging and military contractors,
> Gender and sexuality in the military,
> Racism and war: Dehumanizing the enemy pt1, pt2,
> Breakdown of the military
> G.I. Resistance.
Many times it was extremely hard and depressing to listen to but it needs to be heard and soldiers need to be heard just like the Vietnam vets did, their was also video testimonials from Iraqi's.
This week Democracy Now! is showing video of the event Also Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAC) video coverage and also check out War Comes Home.org
