So many young lives lost, and for what? George W Bush's pleasure it would seem.... Jan 20/09 can't come soon enough.

5. I'm so sorry to hear this.
We have a peace vigil twice a week here and just this week I decided to print the pictures of some of those who have lost their lives to this war and place them on a sign of remembrance. It is so sad to look into the eyes of these young people. I hope that this will help the passersby wake up to the reality of this war. I am so sorry for your loss. Peace, kim

8. I refuse to call it a "war". It's an occupation preceded by an invasion
of a sovereign country.

9. Agreed. This is NOT A WAR! It's an occupation...
I'm sorry for your loss. We have a nephew over there now, but we know he's safe because he is a a big base outside Iraq proper.

This occupation is a horrible scar on America, and it's architects deserve to be held accountable for war crimes and treason.
