Send A Simple Message

Update: I have been watching CSPAN-3 this morning. There is a hearing investigating the coverups of friendly fire death of Pat Tillman and the purposeful misleading information involving the capture and injuries of Jessica Lynch. It is absolutely incredible how this administration used this tragedies for their own benefit. Kevin Tillman said that there is such a disconnect from what really happened to what was reported. If you have the chance to catch any rebroadcast of this hearing, seize it.

A suicide car bomb struck a patrol base northeast of Baghdad on Monday, killing nine U.S. soldiers and wounding 20 in the single deadliest attack on American ground forces in more than a year, the military said....

When I heard about the 9 soldiers that were killed in Iraq, I remembered the following article from the Washington Post, August 4, 2005:
A Marine Reserve company that was known as "Lucky Lima" before suffering heavy casualties in May was hit Wednesday by the deadliest roadside bombing of the Iraq war, a massive explosion that killed 14 Marines and the unit's Iraqi interpreter, according to witnesses and military spokesmen....

The numbers from ICasualties are getting larger:
U.S. Deaths Confirmed By The DoD: 3320
Reported U.S. Deaths Pending DoD Confirmation: 12
Total 3332

How many more will have to die for Bush's war in Iraq? If you think it is time to bring our military home from Iraq, call and e-mail your member of Congress and your Senators with this simple message:

END the War in Iraq, Bring the Troops Home Now!
