Is this slaughter worth what we have won?


Last updated 1/18/2007 at Noon

The number of injured in the Bush War has far outstripped the 3,025 dead. The VA reports that more than 150,000 veterans of the Iraq war are already on disability.

Dr. Col. Vito Imbascini, a urologist and surgeon with the California Army National Guard, said soldiers who survive attacks are often severely disabled for life. He just returned from a four-month deployment to Germany, after treating the worst of the war wounded. He said that an extremely high number of wounded soldiers are coming home with their arms or legs amputated. Imbascini said he amputated the genitals of one or two men every day.

“I walk into the operating room and … there is the body of this Navy SEAL, which is a physical specimen to behold, and his abdomen is open. They’re exploring both intestines. He’s missing both legs below the knee, one arm is blown off, he’s got incisions on his thighs to relieve the pressure on the parts of the legs that are hopefully gonna survive and there’s genital injuries, and you just want to cry.”

Does Mr. Bush spiritually comprehend what is happening to all these young men? Does he consider their sacrifice worth all that we have won in this war?

If we are fighting the “enemy” over there to avoid fighting them on our own soil, then why do we have over 150,000 wounded and 3,025 dead American troops on our soil? Would our nation be safer if these young men had been kept home defending our own borders?

Any congressman who votes for funding for the Bush surge in slaughter of our young men and women is a traitor. We shall be watching to see whether our own congressman, Darrell Issa, supports our troops or votes to escalate their slaughter.
