War - And Its Terrible Cost

Viewing the Reuter's slide show portraying President Bush visiting a center for veterans badly injured during the war left me feeling both sad and outraged. Of course, the Iraqi people have borne a far greater cost than U.S. soliders, with over 70,000 civilians killed as of September this year!!!

I personally found the images disturbing, as I watched a cheerful Bush visit with men who had lost multiple limbs or were severly scarred as a result of this terribly misguided war. My limited consolation is that I believe history will not be kind to Bush and the legacy he created, but that won't bring back all the lost lives and alleviate all the suffering.
