What I am Thinking in this Moment of Silence

Today, they read the names of all 2996 victims of the 9/11 attack. I don't know how long it took but it would have taken far longer if they had also read the names of the 4155 Americans killed in the Iraqi occupation. If they added the 1,255,026 Iraqis killed in the occupation then they would literally be reading names for the rest of the summer. has this quote from H.G. Wells on their website...

A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be...surer of the noose than a private homicide.
– H. G. Wells
