A mere 5 years ago, give or take a couple $trillion plus uncounted lives, limbs, and brain matter

Attaturk at Rising Hegemon reminds us of The Day Which Will Live in Wankery.
Five years ago today, Colin Powell decided to spend all of his credibility to sell George Bush's War. The war John McLovin' wants to last 100 years. A war that costs us more than $100 billion every year (and probably about $2 trillion so far) -- and will cost thousands more dead this year.
Ah, yes, I remember it well. I will be thinking about it as I vote later today. And then I'm going to have a really stiff drink and watch the election returns.
