Too Sad For Words
Too Sad For Words
Trey Ellis

For me the saddest part of the latest Zogby poll of U.S. service men and women was the least reported:

"While 85% said the U.S. mission is mainly 'to retaliate for Saddam's role in the 9-11attacks,' 77% said they also believe the main or a major reason for the war was 'to stop Saddam from protecting al Qaeda in Iraq.'"

If Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld bothered to read this poll then they now go to sleep each night knowing that over 19,000 men and women (85% of the so-far approximately 23,000 dead and wounded) have lost their lives or their arms or their legs or their eyes not for their country but only for the lies that this administration has so carefully engineered.
