"Another Marine died today in Iraq."
How many of our kids must die for bush's oil lust to quench the thirst of CONSERVATIVES? Whose support is resulting in the deaths of our kids in Iraq? CONSERVATIVES. Who greeted swift boat liars with flowers and garlands as they spread their lies throughout America this past summer? CONSERVATIVES? Who is sad that Americans are no longer dying in Vietnam? CONSERVATIVES. As a military veteran, I ask you to please keep the goals and aims of conservatives alive for all the world to see. Why is it that Conservatives are only happy when American Servicemen are dying? Look em in the eye, poke in the chest, kick em in the ass.

1. Crossing the bar.
It is so sad. Nobody cares. One death here one there, so what they say "He/she gave the ultimate sacrifice." That makes it OK.

And yet in my experience when the wars are over and the crying is done ones service to "God and Country" Is largely ignored.

I guess.

2. A tombstone on Guadalcanal, dated in 1942...
"When he gets to Heaven,
To Saint Peter he will tell
'Another Marine Reporting, Sir,
Who'se served his time in Hell!'"

A moment of silence, for a comrade in arms, who died needlessly.
