I checked the website today and the number of our soldiers killed in Iraq hit 3900. That's more than the population of the town in which I was born. Thanks goodness the rate has slowed but I'm not sure where it will end.
Folks don't seem to be talking about the war now. It's become a part of the fabric of our lives now and since it is so painful to contemplate, I feel that some folks would like to put it out of their minds.
We are in so deep now that it would be a disaster if we pulled out without providing some type of stability, but I'm not sure our leaders have a plan. If there is a plan, what is it, and what is the status? I think we need to hold our leaders accountable. If they don't have a clue, then let's elect someone who does.
When you talk to soldiers, most every one will say without hesitation that they are willing to lay their lives on the line. But that is a lot to ask. I think it is our responsibility to make sure that they get out as quickly as humanly possible.
