A Look Back at the "Old" Stuff

Looking at some past work from my website http://www.marknobriga.com. Seems like it's been years since the U.S invaded Iraq- And yes, it has been years since Rumsfeld's "shock and awe" campaign in Iraq where at some point he uttered "It is unknowable how long that conflict will last. It could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months." Uh, yeah. Can you say V-I-E-T-N-A-M. Anyway, here are a few of my pieces about the war since it started in 2003.
