According to Donald Rumsfeld the war could last as long
as 12 more years.

How many more will die in a war based on lies?

How many more billions of our tax dollars will be drained
into a war for oil?

How many more billions will be looted from vital social
needs such as hurricane relief, reconstruction, jobs,
education, and healthcare or libraries, firehouses,
childcare, eldercare, or Social Security?

According to Donald Rumsfeld the number of carrier groups in the gulf region will be reduced from 3 down to 5. Aircraft sorties will be scaled back from 30 a day down to 110 missions a day. The number of troops on the ground will be reduced from 120,000 down to 180,000 due to the fact that replacements will arrive before the other returning troops are allowed to leave.
