1. Shrub's "war of choice" "preemptive war" and all that crap
the human toll can't be counted-now what will the great tax cutting GOP do after all this violence-How much money does the uprising cost? Where is it going to come from? We have no troops to send in-where are replacements coming from? What a tragedy-this war will leave us broken,hated and in debt-mission accomplished

5. Caption from that
Pall bearers from Schofield Army Base escort the body of Wesley Batalona on Saturday, April 17, 2004 from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Honokaa, Hawaii.
