The worst thing I've ever seen
Words cannot describe this thread at daily kos about the March 15 raid on a house in Isahagi, Iraq. We owe it to ourselves and Iraq to take a good long look at these photos and this story.
Who bound and shot these eleven people, including five children under the age of five? Ultimately, we may never know the specifics, as the article states. But we know who caused their deaths. The Bush administration did. WE did.
I wonder about the soldiers that will come home after seeing war and changing. They'll be living amongst us, with a VA system that drags its feet and seldom offers the help they so desperately need. I wonder about all of us - what we've created, what we'll get in return - when all is said and done.
