Here’s the first report of the inevitable human tragedies that will go along with this war:

Refugees trickled across Iraq’s borders today, but there was no exodus as war broke out.

The first arrivals included dozens of Sudanese families who moved to Baghdad with dreams of riches only to head home a decade later penniless and disillusioned.

Volunteers at two camps struggled against a fierce, biting wind on the parched plains of Jordan to erect beige tents bearing the logo of the Red Crescent Society.

Workers sprayed asphalt, unpacked medicine and hoisted floodlights to build towns of tents.

Officials acknowledged preliminary work had gone slowly at Jordan’s border. They blamed the heavy winds and a funding shortfall.

Pray or hope this is over before that trickle becomes a flood.
