Reckless War

Tags:

Edward Said writing on the Iraq war in April 2003:

This is the most reckless war in modern times. It is all about imperial arrogance unschooled in worldliness, unfettered either by competence or experience, undeterred by history or human complexity, unrepentant in its violence and the cruelty of its technology. What winning, or for that matter losing, such a war will ultimately entail is unthinkable. But pity the Iraqi civilians who must still suffer a great deal more before they are finally ‘liberated’.

Since the 2003 invasion, more than 160,000 Iraqi civilians have died violent deaths.
