Democracy Now: Iraq Invasion, Financial Toll & Iraq War Veterans Testify

The Costs of War: 10 Years After Iraq Invasion, New Study Tallies the Massive Human, Financial Toll...

On the 10th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, we look at a massive new report by a team of 30 economists, anthropologists, political scientists, legal experts and physicians about the Iraq War’s impact. "The Costs of War" report found the total number of people who have died from the Iraq War, including soldiers, militants, police, contractors, journalists, humanitarian workers and Iraqi civilians, has reached at least 189,000 people, including at least 123,000 civilians. Financially, the report estimates a cost to U.S. taxpayers of $2.2 trillion, a figure that could one day approach $4 trillion with the interest accrued on the borrowed money used to fund the war. We’re joined by the report’s co-author, Neta Crawford, professor of political science at Boston University. [includes rush transcript]

Podcast of an Iraq Veteran (Adam Kokesh) - Human Services division of some sort:

Note 1: I don't endorse any metal company.

Note 2: On the common use of the word anarchist.

This is the definition of "Anarchy" in the dictionary: 

"Definition of ANARCHY1
a : absence of government
b : a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority
c : a utopian society of individuals who enjoy complete freedom without government"  - 

What I think the kids calling themselves "anarchists" are imagining is a sort of decentralized society. But they know nothing about society itself so they have no understanding of how it should be organized much less how to get there. However, they were sent to kill at 18 based on what they now know, to be a lie. Given that and their age you can understand how they would think complete Anarchy is the answer. To go from the authoritarian system that is necessary in raising kids in a family to the authoritarian structure of an army. So all authority must be challenged  which in a way can be a good thing, but in another not so good. Especially given the state of the United States now. in fact, if I was paranoid I would say that now is that time the US would have to carry out a false flag attack on its people to launch a war for distraction or they will have to face one of two options. 1: A violent revolution OR 2. A release of the truth for the invasions of the last decade.
