It’s been 14 years since George W. Bush declared victory in Iraq. Time flies.

So far this year, IraqBodyCount.org says that 5778 Iraqi civilians have been killed as a direct result of the chain of events set off by Bush’s Iraq invasion (we’ll leave aside the ancillary effects of the invasion in, for example, Syria). If that war really did accomplish its mission, then maybe we should ask what, exactly, the mission was.
