Too Much Destruction - END THIS WAR NOW

While we continue to mourn over the hurricane, kos at Daily Kos reports on a brutal month of August in Iraq:

U.S. military deaths in the Iraq war rose in August to the highest monthly total since January, and American officials predict escalating insurgent violence... At least 84 U.S. troops were killed in August, according to a count of deaths announced by the military. Since the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003, there have been 1,879 American military deaths in Iraq, the Pentagon said on Wednesday, with another 14,265 troops wounded.

Perhaps I give humans too much credit sometimes, but I wish that the tragedy unfolding in Louisiana and Mississippi will bring us to think about what is important in life, and make this petty oil-greed war stand out like the ugly stain upon our nation that it is, and that we end the unjust, dirty, illegal war NOW.
