Is this like marriage vows — "until death do we depart"? I see a battle of hate, destruction and pain. We teach our kids to take responsibility for their actions, but we're willing to take responsibility for Bush's mistakes by fighting a war that is totally wrong. This man has power issues that will be a struggle until we stop going to war and fighting his battles.
Talk to your kids; tell them not to enlist. It will not make them more of a man or woman; it will bring them home with a lot of mental problems they will have to live with the rest of their lives.
There cannot be a war if there's no one to fight it.
To all the men and women overseas: Strike! Put your weapons down and come home. Face what you have to face here rather than losing your life there.
