    thank you.  Your story, and Robert Zangas' blog, and death, mean a lot.

    I am one of the few who "would" have supported a military intervention in Iraq if it had been genuinely international-- UN authorized, sponsored, supported, funded, executed, etc. Hussein was a psychopath; the Iraqis needed help. Also, I did and do still believe that, since the whole world still runs on oil, homes and commerce, realpolitik would rather not leave 51% of the planet's oil supply in the hands of a whimsical pirate/madman.

    That said, I adamantly opposed Chimpy's war because I believed all this mess and murder, looting and profiteering, would result. This gangs' incompetence and greed, blindness and deceit, are unbelievable.

    It makes you want to scream bloody murder.

    But, goddammit, we will take our country back. We will staunch the flow of blood and restore some decent level of integrity and intelligence to government.  

    I'm getting too sentimental, but you know what I mean. My prayers for your son.
