Grim Facts

Of the 4,000 men and women who have been killed in Iraq during this illegal war, 97% of these human beings were killed after President Idiot declared "Mission Accomplished" on May 1, 2003.

Over half of the dead soldiers were under 25 years of age.

Approximately 2,200 children have lost a parent since this illegal war began.

And, the Idiot's Vice President implies that the military members have no one to blame but themselves. Here's his quote:

"We're blessed with families who have sacrificed as they have. The President carries the biggest burden, obviously; he's the one who has to make the decision to commit young Americans. But we are fortunate to have the group of men and women, the all-volunteer force, who voluntarily put on the uniform and go in harm's way for the rest of us. You wish nobody ever lost their life, but unfortunately it's one of those things that go with living in the world we live in. Sometimes you have to commit military force, and when you do, there are casualties."

There are no words that can adequately describe the sadness that I feel for the families, the moms and dads, the sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandmothers, grandfathers and especially the children.
