Just a reminder... Iraq is still hell
Iraq. The name of that nation turned hellhole alone brings death to mind. Now comes the news that 15 service members have been killed since Saturday. 8 died yesterday.
Unless you dug around for the news, you probably hadn't heard this. The news lately has been a continual drumbeat of Foley, Woodward, Foley, Rice, Foley and Rumsfeld. And Foley. To be sure all this news has contributed mightily to the crumbling of Republican hopes going into the midterm election. But...
There are 15 families who as I post this entry into my obscure little blog really could care less about who Foley was diddling online. 15 families whose grief must be so overwhelming that the Woodward reporting on the events that led to their sons, and daughters untimely demise really has no meaning right now.
These 15 families are added to the thousands of American families who have already been shattered. And they are the first of thousands more dead to come should this President and his advisors be allowed to continue this absolute folly. Not to mention the tens, if not hundreds of thousands of deaths by Iraqis. This dreadful tally will be the historical legacy of our President. And of the generation that allowed this to take place. George Bush is not Satan. He is just enthralled by the Angel of Death due to his own ignorance and bull-headed nature.
