Ted Turner says the Iraq War was dumb, has caused "incalculable damage" and will take 20 years to overcome "if we just act reasonably intelligently.":
"It will go down in history, it is already being seen in history, as one of the dumbest moves that was ever made by anybody. A couple of others that come to mind were the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbour and the German invasion of Russia.
"It literally broke my heart. You don't start wars just because you don't like somebody. ... I wouldn't even start a war with Rupert Murdoch."
