on this memorial day...

...let us never forget the brave young men and women who sacrificed their lives in the bush/cheney/rumsfeld/halliburton vanity, pre-emptive, unnecessary war for profit.

my original intent was to copy and paste the list here. the list exceeds blogger's 1MB size requirement, which speaks volumes.

4300 reported coalition deaths. click here for the list. once there, click "DoD Confirmation" to see how startlingly young most of these kids were when they were killed.

a gross underestimate of 45,000 iraqi civilian deaths. those are only the deaths reported by various news agencies, according to icasualties.org.

merely stumbling upon this site for this posting has left me in a puddle of emotions.
