A Soldier's Simple, Powerful Statement to George W. Bush

From BuzzFlash and Juan Cole. Comments at both.

A ceremony was held on base in Iraq on Tuesday for the five troops killed Monday, as their bodies were loaded in an airplane. About 75 members of the fallen soldiers' unit stood at attention and at least 100 other soldiers stood through the 30-minute ceremony. One soldier, who asked not to be identified, said, "President Bush should be out here watching this ramp ceremony to see what it is really like. The people who created this war need to be thinking about the families of these 18-year-olds who are dying (my em)."

A comment:

Why should we hear about body bags and deaths? It's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?" Barbara Bush

...the apple (mad george) certainly didn't fall far from the tree...

Remember, in the Bushes' worldview, they're the only ones that count. Everybody else is just the help. Unimportant, faceless, and replaceable. Not real. Of course they die because of what we do to further our agenda. So what?
