War Guilt


The Nazis had been defeated for many years before Germany's citizens could face their collective guilt for atrocities committed during WWII. How long will it take for the "undefeated" US populace to come to terms with its collective guilt for the atrocities committed during the seemingly doomed and arguably misguided Iraq War? 

All of those families, who lost loved ones, have a reason to want there to have been a worthwhile purpose for our soldiers' loss of life. Individuals trying to do good in their little spheres of influence does not change the fact that history will prove that we, as a nation, were wrong.
