What About Us
I have just finished reading Stuart Mirsky's column "The Rockaway Irregular" (Bush Alone) wherein he states that "… the fact that Bush is not beloved by some or even a majority cannot be the measure of a man - or a president. Harry Truman left office with his poll numbers in the toilet but is remembered today as a bold decisive and effective leader…" Mr. Bush will never be thought of in those terms and a big reason for that is because of the Iraq war. President Truman ended a war so that no more of our service people would be killed and Mr. Bush started one that could have been avoided, that's a big reason he will not be as well thought of as President Truman.
You state that "since 9/11 we have captured or killed untold terrorists." Well, who cares if they were killed, they probably deserved it, but no place do you mention the thousands of U.S. men and women who have been killed in a war that could have been avoided. That's who we should care about.
