  • heartbreaking...hard to look at as a (single) dad myself as so soon after father's day -- ( i know no father's day in Iraq - but just looking at the pic from a parent's perspective...)

    the parents of the killed children will haunt this admin/country for generations because of this senseless Iraq war...

  • Every once in awhile, you have to step back and appreciate that this is a war.

    People die. That kind of gets forgotten in the US presentation.
