    ..... the men killed in Falluja were merceneries or not, though I fervently hope that they were in Iraq for nobler reasons than getting paid to terrorrize and kill Iraqis as "Dogs of War" (or more politically correctly "Soldiers of Fortune") have done since the beginning of time.

    Even if they were merceneries, their deaths were tragic and pointless, jus as the lives of 600 americans and 100 coalition soldiers, thousands of Iraqi men women and children and the countless number of HUMAN BEINGS of both sides who have been maimed and multliated in this adventure.  

    Having said that, I have nothing but contempt for terrorists, merceneries and other merchants of murder and mayhem.

    I support Kerry, not because I love him more but Because I love Bush far, far, far, far, far less.
