1. Breaks my heart
I can't help but see my child's face in her and the grief she must be experiencing. This is so wrong. We need a change.

3. Tears are beginning
to be an everyday occurrence with me over the loses and those families affected by this illegal, immoral, unjust war.

2. It is just amazing that people continue to vote
Republican so they remain in power on the backs of our troops and their families!

I sometimes wonder how irrational some Americans in the electorate become when you show them the flag and say WAR, no matter how unjustified.

4. Probably some freeptard will attack the kid
if the mommy dares open her mouth in discussion ...

It's the only way they'd feel the odds were even ... well, maybe the girl would have to have both hands tied behind her back, then they'd feel that they had a chance ...

5. Hopefully, no one will say that to that poor, grieving child.
That would be an incredibly cruel thing to do to a child who is grieving for her father, whatever one's opinion of the war may be.

7. She shouldn't have to grieve for her father
if Bush & Co didn't get away with the pack of lies they sold this country about their reasons for going to war and why we have to stay, when there is no longer any good reason to stay, except to protect the oil fields.

What BushCo has done to this family and 1000's of others is what's cruel. When she grows up and learns the truth, will also be cruel.

6. Multiply those tears by 100
and you have an indicator of the anguish being experienced in Iraq every day.

8. Some people are willing to sacrifice
those men they have devalued. The poor, the foreigners, the infidels...
