To save your world, you asked this man to die.

That really makes you think! I don't know what I would say but You know I have 2 sons in this, one pro and one anti Bush and i can see both of them just being accepting. I'm shaking my head again.

so sad.

LET'S TALK said...

I can't understand how our country can continue to allow this President to send our children to Iraq and fight for reason that only he knows. How can he sleep at night? Don't he realize or care what this does to the family of the troops that die their?

hey, Iraq just won't cave in on the little matter of signing over all it's oil to Big Brother.
once that happens, what do you want to bet Bush'd be happy to leave.
