U.S. combat deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan now equal the 2,973 lives lost during the Sept. 11 attacks. Also, the number of civilians slain in Iraq in the last month reached an unprecedented level: 6,599 dead.

  • And, oh yeah: Not only are U.S. troop levels in Iraq unlikely to decrease any time soon, but U.S. commanders say even more troops are needed.

    And how do you get more troops?  By a draft, that’s right, a draft.  But no Republican will mention that dreaded “D” word until after the election, until after they see if they have a majority.  So if you help Republicans in any way, by not voting or by not persuading your friends and family to vote, by not contributing to the Democrats, you’ll be helping to promote a draft, among other things too stupid to mention.  So make sure the Democrats win this time around, and don’t jawbone about it or prevaricate or think about how inept or stupid they are, just vote for them.  Right now the Democrats are the only force that will balance off the Republican’s march to a totalitarian state; they may become corrupt but it’ll take some time for that to happen.

    I think Ted Turner had it right when he called this “the stupidest war in history”. 
    RIP, poor victims of evil men.
