We Have Lost

Iddybud and William Rivers Pitt remind us of all that we have already lost in this new century and millennium. No so-called potential "victory" in Iraq will pay for all we have lost, and sadly we're still losing.

Imagine seeing big headlines in tomorrow morning's paper saying "America wins!" "US Finally Beats Iraq" or some other variation, like "US Kills Final Terrorist". Now go and put a dollar and lives figure on that exuberance.

What? Not exuberant? Well put a dollar and lives figure on it anyway.

Now compare that will the actual dollar and lives figure.

Good investment?

Stay the course?

When many people are being killed, They should be mourned in heartfelt sorrow.
That is why a victory must be observed like a funeral.
