Memorial Weekend....

More than one thousand Americans have died in the battlefield since we last celebrated Memorial Day. The month of May may turn out to be the deadliest month since the Iraq War started. Nevertheless most of us go on living our lives almost unaware of the sacrifices of so many American families.

I'm tired of hearing Bush and Cheney say that we are fighting them over there so they won't come and fight us over here. What these guys will never admit is that the 9/11 terrorists were motivated by their hatred of American foreign policy in the Middle East...not by a hatred of American values. Our occupation of Iraq only gives the extremists an additional reason to attack Americans.
