3. Wonder (but know they won't count) how many Iraqis
died in the last 5 days. Note...I didn't say Insurgents. Iraqis...unless they count the old women and children who are getting caught in the cross fire as "insurgents".

Amazing how many people were utterly paralyzed for weeks repeating 3 Thousands American's dead! And yet who can see 100,000 Iraqis killed and dismiss it as "well that happens when you Liberate someone".

It's a mad world.

5. While I agree that this war is wrong....
I just don't have time to stop and think about the Iraqi civilians. I'm sorry if that sounds callous but I just WANT OUR GUYS HOME!

It's not that the Iraqi people don't matter ... it's just that our guys matter more ... TO ME!

4. It is despicable that the impact
of this horrifying war is diluted by a press that reports in incidents rather than in concepts to show a larger reality. every single death is a tragedy. This is lost when you know there are dozens of funerals being planned around this country and that most of the citizens arenot aware. May each of those families find comfort and peace in their way and what they need! May the 'media' find the reality based community and the larger story of how many people are dying for a lie!
