NOT ONE headline about Iraq. To find ANY reference, you have to scroll down to the fine print. How can this be? Have we simply forgotten?

1. WE haven't forgotten.
They just wish that we could and/or would.

5. People do not want to think about it...
They have not forgotten. The people that edit these publications, and sites, do not want to bring this up. They (the editors) want us to believe that this is no longer important. We all know that people are dieing today. They died yesterday, and will die tomorrow. Meida editors want us to believe that it is no longer important, but it is. What should be done to these editors, I will not repeat.

4. This is what you get when you have a war that not everyone, especially
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 02:34 PM by EV_Ares
the elites, wealthy, whatever do not have to make a sacrifice like when there was the draft.

A draft & you would have college students out demonstrating like during Vietnam.

A draft & you would have parents concerned or more concerned about what is going on in Iraq.

When people have the option of turning on the war on their TVs or if they want to read about it somewhere, fine but there has never been enough outrage about this war from how we got into it, the outing of a CIA Agent, private armies killing whoever, over a million Iraqis have lost their lives on top of the 1000s of Americans.

People are becoming more concerned with the price of gas for their Hummers; college tuition, food, the falling of the dollar which will make their european vacation cost more, etc. Iraq is now maybe a #2 concern and of course the surge is working.

When you think your son or daughter may have to go fight in a non-necessary war, you get concerned, when you as a college student or other individual who could be drafted may have to go fight in a non-necessary war, you get concerned.

I can only guess how many young republicans would be lost & anti-war if they might have to be drafted.
