Death, American Style

While we go balls out mourning the Virginia Tech shootings it seems like a good time to remind gentle Americans of the daily toll that continues in Iraq — 157 people just today — and the illegal and immoral nature of that war. So yes, 32 people dead is pretty bad and this is a very sad story. And guns are effective weapons and Americans love them and that’s a sad story.

Now multiply it by 5 and imagine it happening on a daily/weekly basis and you know what Mr. Bush has created in Iraq. It’s almost like we’re giving a little slice of Americana to our Iraqi friends and calling it “democracy.” What are they gonna do, say no?

UPDATE:

The total is now up to 178 dead today. It’s still early though.
