Out of Iraq

Ever since I heard that the last U.S. troops had left Iraq, I wanted to write a blog post.  But nothing came.  Words failed me.  I thought Chez might take a stab at it; in fact, I was counting on him to.  But he's got other stuff going on so I'm cutting him a break. 

I'm ancient enough to remember when the nation held a moment of revernce with only church bells breaking the silence when the Vietnam War ended.  But there's been no word of anything like that this time. 

Then, this morning, I read Tom's post (December 21: "Out of Iraq") and realized that I don't need to write my post after all.  Tom's done it.  And done it good.

There's nothing more to say.

Thanks for sharing Tom Degan's blog. I am now following him. I admit I have become numb to the tragedy, greed, and general insanity of this war. But I am glad someone is still indignant enough to remind me of where I stand and what is lost.

Thank you so much for introducing me to Tom's blog, which I have not bookmarked. I met Chez through you and am sure I will find this one as thought provoking. He said things I've been thinking but could never say so well, but I was one of the many who said, "I don't believe it; prove it" when we were told of the WMD in Iraq. I especially hate the lie that so many have died to save our freedom. I'm really sick of hearing that one.

Thank you for sharing. It sounds like a discussion my father and I had the other night. I'll be sharing the link.
