This is the thought process of a cave man

2,000 US military persons have been killed on the battlefields of Iraq since the March 2003 bombing and invasion. What is more horrifying is over 15,000 have been wounded. And tens of thousands have been traumatized for life - persons the rest of us will have to care for the rest of their lives - persons who will not ever be able to just enjoy life.

Insane leaders say we must send hundreds of thousands more to the battlefields for 10 more years in order to "honor" those already killed. This is the thought process of a cave man - of an barbarian war lord - of a person who has never seen the horror of war. A person who went AWOL and was a drunkard for many years and who failed at several businesses. This is GW Bush and his neocon advisors.

Our US Representative Rick Larsen continues to meekly oppose the war. The Democrats in Congress are afraid to speak out against it. They are looking at polls and trying to judge what is safe to say. We who can see how stupid this war is can only continue to speak out. And remember which of our elected representatives and leaders were too stupid or too scared to speak out with us. We should find new persons to elect.
