Where’s the fire in Iraq theater?

If you or I shouted “fire!” in a crowded theater when there was no fire, many would be hurt and, justifiably, we would be in serious trouble.

We sit in the American theater while our president and his administration shout “fire” in the form of “Weapons of Mass Destruction” as the main reason for invading Iraq. They also tell us that Hussein and Bin Laden are cohorts in terrorism and the 9/11 attacks. President Bush repeatedly promised that he would never use our military for nation-building. This has all been proven false, false, and false!

Meanwhile, many have lost their lives in Iraq. Many are injured. Disheartened soldiers are committing suicide and over 100,000 of our loved ones are still at risk, including my brother. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
