Two days ago, the local news covered the funeral of an American Marine - Iraqi casualty. His sister was interviewed and tearfully asked *the* question - simply - "Why?"

Other than answering, "A lust for oil" ... I don't know.

The image that "got" to me was the one showing the man in the turban holding the dead child - whose feet had been blown off. I won't forget that one for a long, long time.

Support our troops - really support them - bring them home.
