This is not a humor post. Ty just called to say the 3,000 mark for US troops who have died in Iraq has been passed. 3,000 men and women that were sent off to fight in a war built on lies have lost their lives. (Actually more when you consider the ones who died after they left Iraq.)
The Bully Boy built on a war on lies to justify it to the American people. Now that most Americans want the troops brought home, it's time to start demanding it. His days of coasting should be finished. He's put off any type of decision all month while 110 troops have died -- they didn't have the luxury of putting off decisions.
He needs to be impeached. C.I.'s working on an entry that's posted in part already. As much as Bully Boy needs to be held accountable for what he's done, media -- big and small -- needs to get serious and quit yanking everyone's chain. The war is four years old in March. When is media going to get serious?
This morning, at The Third Estate Sunday Review, we were doing an editorial on the 3,000 mark. And we held that for last in case the 3,000 mark was hit while we were still working on the edition. The illustration below is from the edtorial. The 3,000 mark should follow Bully Boy around. But don't be surprised if we don't see the 4,000 mark or higher before the illegal war ends because too many people refuse to get serious about the war.
I'm not talking about "kids." When Ty called, I hollered, "Quiet." When I got off the phone with him, I passed on what he'd just told me. There's not a person at this party that doesn't grasp what 3,000 lives for an illegal war means or the over 655,000 Iraqis that The Lancet estimates have died in the war. I don't get the same feeling about media -- big or small.
