Dying in Vain?
Thu May 25 2006

As Memorial Day approaches, I have heard some sentiment that we should stay in Iraq, regardless of what got us there, because we need to be sure the thousands of soldiers we've lost so far did not die in vain.

The argument to keep the soldiers there so that the ones that were already killed won't have died in vain makes no sense to me. If we lose one soldier in an unjust war, does that mean we have to win that war at any cost? Of course not.

I am not saying that we have to cut and run in Iraq. I am wondering why we are spread so thin in IRAQ when the real battle should have been fought in AFGHANISTAN.

Bush, behaving more like a village idiot than a president, foolishly removed the focus on finding Osama bin Laden, DEAD OR ALIVE, and launched hundreds of thousands of troops into Iraq on a wild goose chase for WMD.

President Bush had a report from the AMBASSADOR of NIGER that told him, long BEFORE Joe Wilson went over there to confirm the story, that the yellowcake uranium being sent to Iraq was a MYTH, and yet Bush used it in his State of the Union speech anyway.

We do not belong in Iraq. We had Saddam Hussein contained. We suspected the WMD, but the weapons inspectors said, "give us more time", the European Union said "give them more time", many Americans marched in streets saying, "give peace a chance". In fact, President Bush in a news conference leading up to the preordained war said that he would wait for the U.N. vote. He said something similar to "let's see them show their cards".

But he lied. He attacked and now we honor those fallen on Memorial Day. Let's not continue to make the same mistake with those still living.

This just in...
