4,000 Dead. For What?

Just heard the news on CNN that four U.S. soldiers were killed today, by grim irony the day of the Christian Resurrection, in Baghdad, taking the American toll officially to 4,000.

For what? For what?

May they rest in peace, despite their sacrifice to an obscene and arrogant mistake.

For what? For lies. Lies on a geopolitical scale.

This one's for my best friend, also a victim of lies on a geopolitical scale, some forty years ago this coming Saturday.

Thank you, Anonymous. The sorrow of ongoing, costly lies leaves one speechless. This kid, only 19 years old? Damn. I'm so sorry.
