When this thing started, I thought our casualties would be in the hundreds like in Desert Storm. When casualties reached 1000, I thought that was as bad as it would get. I guess I have egg on my face.:(

I just feel for the mothers and fathers who have to bury their children.

Heartbreaking.

Add the 80,000 to 1,000,000+ civilians killed depending on who you ask.

Read this site every now and then.

Look through those pictures.

Cry. Get mad. Empathize. We must continue our fight out of love for all of these innocent people and for our fellow countrymen who are stuck there. These people are suffering the most painful mental, emotional, and physical agony imaginable on a daily basis, and as tempting as it can be to bury our heads in the sand we need to keep this reality in front of our own faces so that we do not fall into selfish apathy.

"A time comes when silence is betrayal. Some of us who have already begun to break the silence of the night have found that the calling to speak is often a vocation of agony, but we must speak. We must speak out with all the humility that is appropriate to our limited vision, but we must speak." MLK

We've lost more lives for this war than we have 9/11. In the words of the great Ron Paul: "It's time we come home!"

I feel bad for the Iraqis that have been completely ruined by our leaders over the years. And for what? For money, for power.

Try, Over 70,000 deaths, and over 1 million disabilities among American soldiers attributed to Iraq Wars says U.S. government data (http://www.agoracosmopolitan.com/home/Frontpage/2008/03/21/02286.html)

According to U.S. media reports, there are well below 5,000 U.S. soldiers who have been killed in Iraq. However, this data appears to be very misleading. Why? Because many tens of thousands of American soldiers have apparently been killed to-date, as a result of being exposed to radiation poisoning from the indiscriminate killing machines of U.S. military weaponry.

I can only feel sorry for the mothers and fathers who actually tried to prevent their children from joining the military...the big mistake that cost them their lives....and the children were too stubborn to heed their advice.

The rest of mothers and fathers should learn from their children's mistakes and encourage other parents to learn from their children's mistakes....alert and wake up these parents about Bush and McCain's insatiable need for war.
