How many more wasted lives?

Is the way to honor Americans who have died in Iraq to send more Americans to die? This family doesn't think so.

Like two lawyers in a case. One defending. One prosecuting. Who is the greater one ? Soldiers who are on the offensive. Soldiers who are on the defensive. Who are the more honoured ones ? If the objectives are achieved, it is high time for the soldiers to come home.

Wasted lives? That's just plain sick. I count one in this whole war, your fallen Saint Cindy. She is the only wasted life in this whole war, and she still walks and breathes.

The only way those lives are "wasted" is if we come home without finishing the job. Then they really did die for nothing.

Perhaps you failed to click through the links. Here is what the father who lost a son in Iraq wrote in his piece in the Washington Post:

Though it hurts, I believe that his death -- and that of the other Americans who have died in Iraq -- was a waste. They were wasted in a belief that democracy would grow simply by removing a dictator -- a careless misunderstanding of what democracy requires. They were wasted by not sending enough troops to do the job needed in the resulting occupation -- a careless disregard for professional military counsel.

But their deaths will not be in vain if Americans stop hiding behind flag-draped hero masks and stop whispering their opposition to this war. Until then, the lives of other sons, daughters, husbands, wives, fathers and mothers may be wasted as well.
