  •  I had the same thought (6+ / 0-)

    It'a powerful, articulate rant. The points are the same regardless, but the impact does turn on whether this is real or fiction. If it's not fiction, it should be seen or heard by everybody, I would urge the poster to come forward and shed her anonymity. I don't want to deluge the poor woman's mailbox, but maybe the diarist could submit a reply containing a summary of our remarks offering our profound sympathy and our hope that she go truly public with this (expletives deleted, of course)?

      Should go slap the judge and each juror be for they go to deliberate the case. Remember the terrorist act.

        I recognized the words, but neither the syntax nor the content made much sense. Who is the judge and who is the juror, and who is supposed to be doing the slapping? If this was some sort of snide criticism of my comment (and it's really hard to tell, becuase it does'nt make sense), I'm at a loss. I din't justify anything about the Iraq war. Actually, I urged that some effort be made to contact the poster and suggest she go public,  which would have much more impact and do more good than a rant on Craig's List.

          just a silly comment to ease a little tension. Back to the facts...

      ...the impact does turn on whether this is real or fiction.

      Whether or not it's "real" has nothing to do with its impact.  I assure you that the sentiments are shared by thousands of people who have lost loved ones for this fraudulent, criminal war.
