Bush today said he 'understands' the feelings of people such as the mom who lost her son in Iraq camping out near his Crawford TX 'ranch'. But his disrespectful answer is to keep soldiers in place dying and killing in his Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Many remember when it was the Soviets warring in Afghanistan, now it is the red, white and blue. It is hopeless to try to 'win' there. Let the Afghans fight it out and determine their future. They may even choose peace if we'd let them down from the mountain caves.
W says 'it would send the wrong message to our enemy' if we withdrew from Iraq. His idea of the right message is keep occupying, dying, killing. This only brings more hatred and terrorism toward America. Bodies keep piling up, both US troops and Iraqis, and families destroyed by Bush's bloody stubborn ideaology of war.
Hearts worldwide are with the mom and others staking Bush out in Crawford. He should show some guts and come out to talk with them. I'm sure he won't because Karl Rove and Cheney won't let him. It would look weak to his insane warmongering supporters, and Bush may even have to open his mind to ending the bloodbath he's unethically created with lies.
Bush is commander in chief, but we all have the power. If we really want to stop war and live in peace we must live more simply and respect the world.
Stop buying so much gas, shopping at Wal-Mart, and hogging resources then saying we want peace, freedom and equality. Improve the world by changing our habits.
