    Bless you for this, sir:

    Unfortunately, just as too many Americans swallowed the propaganda that put Sheehan and Ostrom in harm's way, too many Americans will wallow in this dungpile, giving credence to the most despicable liars in their blinkered patriotism.

    Very well put.  And you're right.  And Jesus, is it enraging.

    But as the bodies pile up, fewer and fewer people will be able to contine with this sick illusion.

    It's a fucking tragedy that that's what it will take, but there's only so much we can do.  We can try to hasten their recognition of the truth here, but until a critical mass of people are willing to face the horrible, bloddy bender this country has been on over the last four years, many more of our people will be killed and maimed... and a truly unconsciounable number of Iraqis, as well.

    The glimmer of hope is that people's illusions are being shattered, little by little.  That's the trend, no doubt about it.

    But... so slowly.  FAR too slowly.

      and as they come back to each small town in America where we trust our leaders, even as they send our jobs to China, give billions to corporations and leave our schools in decay, our neighbors without health insurance, all for the sake of the almighty dollar.

      It is a noble cause, just not noble enough for the War President's children to sign up for.
