stray it doesnt matter how much money we've lost. it doesnt matter whether or not we are "spreading freedom". it doesnt matter whether or not iraq is a democracy. it doesnt matter whether or not you like the iraqis.

people are DYING over there. they are getting KILLED. doesnt that mean anything to anyone? or have we actully reached the point where we are willing to trade human life for material posession? I hope to Gog we haven't. I hope and pray we haven't.

theres no honor in getting the left side of your body blown off by a grenade. theres no honor in getting blown to bits or burned to death. theres no honor in dying because a piece of metal got shot through your skull. none at all.

love your country. true. but is it worth your life? i could see if giving your life would mean a certain safe future for a country. but every death of the soliders just puts this countyr into more turmoil, and gets us into more trouble. would you die for a reason unknown to you? would you just die?
