Memorial Day 2006

The violin is playing Mozart's Requiem. More than 2000 soldiers have died in Iraq. Thousands have been permanently maimed. And still no end in sight. No plan. We keep sending more and more soldiers into harm's way. For what? So the Iraqi people can have a democracy? They don't want a democracy. They wouldn't be happy with a democracy. If we ever leave this hellhole, they will go back to their way of determining who gets to rule. They fight each other til someone wins. And still we keep sending our soldiers over there to die, or not die, but return broken.
