“So?”

March 24, 2008
tags: ,

Two events occured over the last week that pertained to Bush’s war. The first was Vice President Cheney’s cavalier answer when confronted with the fact that most Americans are not in favor of the war (video). The other event that occured was the fact the we reached 4,000 combat deaths in Iraq.

Well, Mr. Cheney, below are the men and women of Delaware who are my answer to your question.

    Nicely done, nemski. Thank you for doing this.

    Cheney really is a piece of work. The sher hubris in that one-word question sums up the entirety of the Bush administration.

    Thanks for this, nemski. We attended many of the services for these young and women as Patriot Guard Riders. I remember each one.

    I appreciate the comments. I can definitely say that this was a difficult post to write, especially for those kids of 18 or 21 who died. Very difficult.
