Danish PM Admits Faults In Iraq Strategies

Sitting here with the morning coffee, waiting for the rhythm of the day to settle in, I’m reading in the newspaper. It says that Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the danish Prime Minister who unilaterally chose for Denmark to participate in the Iraq war, admits the invasion strategy had it’s faults and shortcomings.

It’s roughly 3? years since the war started, March 18th 2003. Like many others, I thought it would be a bad idea. Turns out we were right and the people we elected weren’t. How is it this happens more and more often? To date, the war has cost the lives of 5 Danes, 2804 Americans, $336,999,380,179 and maybe as much as 600.000 Iraqis. I’d say that’s bad planning.
