The following clip is NOT for everyone. I post it due to my belief that any readers who want and can handle the brutal truth should have it available to them. It shows graphic scenes of carnage involving our incredibly brave and dedicated servicemen serving in Iraq which the American public is prevented from seeing in our media. It is powerful and not for the faint-hearted.
With the 2000 dead soldier milestone recently past, there were those on the right that attempted to dismiss the number's significance, suggesting that compared to other more deadly wars, this really isn't too bad.
Watch THIS PIECE and then try to suggest that 2000 soldiers slaughtered and countless mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, wives, lovers and friends left in anguish and pain that will linger for the rest of their lives, and the hundreds of thousands of severely wounded, paralyzed, blinded, and psychologically scarred servicemen and women is really not that high a price to pay.
And as always, the question remains. Why?
On a more hopeful note, THIS CLIP was shot in Los Angeles.
I see it as inspirational proof that we still have a country and constitution worth fighting to preserve.
