Iraq War Logs from Wikileaks were made public yesterday and document 109,000 deaths, including 66,000 civilian deaths, of which 15,000 were previously unknown. The more than 390,000 field reports from US military reveal the truth about the Iraq War from 2004 to 2009, which Wikileaks’ Julian Assange hopes will correct attacks “on the truth that occurred before the war, during the war, and which [have] continued on since the war officially concluded.”

The mid-term elections have shown a large enthusiasm gap among Democratic voters. If Obama thinks its bad now, wait until he sees 2012 and seeks re-election. If the wars continue, the peace movement will find somewhere else to go and the Democrats will be in electoral trouble. The Dems need to energize their base by changing course on weapons and war.

The American high command, and American civilians are only now beginning to appreciate what the resistance did to them. They are only now starting to realise that they are not the only ones who can inflict “collateral damage” and that there is more than one form of it.
