War Stories Echo an Earlier Winter

According to Steve Vogel of The Washington Post, "Grim-faced and sorrowful, former soldiers and Marines sat before an audience of several hundred yesterday in Silver Spring and shared their recollections of their service in Iraq."

Winter Soldier: America Must Hear These Vets' Stories

Penny Coleman writes for AlterNet: "I missed the Winter Soldier Investigation in 1971. At the time I was married to a vet who desperately wanted to put his war behind him - and he wanted me to help him do it. We were supposed to pretend it had never happened. It didn't work."

Five Years Into War, Soldiers Speak

Today marks the fifth anniversary of the day President Bush announced from the Oval Office the "opening stages of what will be a broad and concerted campaign" to invade Iraq. Five years later, more than 200 of those men and women joined last week in Silver Spring, Maryland, to speak out against that mission and to invest their government with the responsibility to end it. The event was called "Winter Soldier." In the coming weeks, Truthout will bring you in-depth video and written coverage of the issues raised in testimony at Winter Soldier. Matt Renner interviews Winter Soldier coordinator Perry O'Brien, while Maya Schenwar writes on the event's significance.

Rules of Engagement
Winter Soldier 2008

Tomorrow, watch for Part II of Truthout's multimedia series on the Winter Soldier 2008 veterans' testimonials. This Wednesday's video and story will investigate the rules of engagement in Iraq: What instructions are given to soldiers to help them decide when and how to attack, and what happens when those rules are not enforced?

When it comes to modern-day war, the very term "rules of engagement" can be a contradiction in terms. During the Winter Soldier testimonies, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans recounted the everyday violations of those unenforced rules, resulting in civilian casualties and needless damage and destruction. In the second installment of Truthout's Winter Soldier series, Matt Renner interviews Iraq veteran Jason Hurd, and Maya Schenwar writes on the disconnect between the rules and the realities on the ground. Seven testimonies from "Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan" are also presented in their entirety.

The costs of war

Foreign Policy in Focus
by Zia Mian


Five years ago the United States attacked and occupied Iraq. It has lost militarily, politically and morally. The end of the war may be in sight. But the consequences will endure, as will the deep-seated impulse among America’s leaders for global intervention without constraint. The war has exposed the limits of American military power. The promise of a high-tech war of “shock and awe” quickly crumbled and has been all but forgotten. The abiding images of the war, even in America, will not be cruise missiles over Baghdad but torture at Abu Ghraib and the massacre at Fallujah. People will remember a brutal counter-insurgency. The recent Winter Soldier hearings in Washington, DC, organized by Iraq Veterans Against the War, have started to reveal some of the daily horrors of the occupation forces...
