US military deaths in Iraq war at 4,337



Bush's Wars, now Obama's, have pretty much taken a back seat to the economy, repossessed homes, lost jobs, swine flu maybe becoming a pandemic, possible forced vaccinations, etc. etc. and people have too much to worry about to fret about the wars. But It ain't over and our military are still dying or getting wounded. So they're going to start bringing them home. Yeh--after they send and keep on sending them to Afghanistan and other hot spots on the globe instead of home to the US. Oh yeh, they'll send SOME home so people can see "our troops are coming home" but more will be transferred to hot spots.

The U.S. must keep up its efforts to be Master of the World, the Military Industrial Complex must keep on raking in billions and mega corps like Haliburton et al also must maintain their billions in profits from wars.... and the OIL, ofcourse.

But people, don't forget the sons and daughters of America dying and wounded for money and power of the above.

"Bringing them home", only to rest for two weeks, then it's off to another war. Of course, the fawning press ignores that part. Obama is Bush from another angle, a.k.a "more of the same."

Yes, and even those mentally wounded, suicidal, suffering from PTSD and other mind wounds are being declared fit for duty and being deployed to Afghanistan. The more things "change" (a la Obama), the more they stay the same.

Seems like years since I've been around here. I'm sorry about that. But I made the journey in these wee hours. I am sleepless for the very reason you wrote about, the fact that people are putting the war aside in the midst of all the other problems.

I honestly believe that if we solve the war problem, we'll solve a lot of other problems along with it. Many are about money and the war eats up money faster than anything.

I'm not sure what I'll be doing about it directly, but I did start blogging on the Ashland Peace Blog again. Remember, I started a peace vigil in my hometown, then moved to another town, but I didn't do anything. I kept the blog, and now I am searching my soul for a way to work for peace, again.

Your blog is still on my side bar. I'll try to get over here more often. It's been a busy life these days with Grandkids and family, some road tripping in there too this past summer.

Hope all is good with you folks.

Peace to all.
