    It is sad that the administration was willing to risk american lives along with civilian lives in Iraq. To date, Bush has not provided an evidence of the WMD. Prior to the war, they have been diligently implying that they had all the evidence to support that Iraq indeed had a WMD. Why can't they show those Intelligence report? How come they have not found WMD?

    Regardless to the matter, I have pure sympathy to those who risk and lost their lives in the war. Many has been young american has been killed and left little children to their mother and now without a father.

    My further dismany is to the media here in the U.S., There are so many heroes but they take advantage of the sitution for the sake of $$ without taking into account the other Americans that risk and lost their lives are also Hero.

    lets take Jessica Lynch as an example. Please excuse the language used. It is indeed quite frustrating why the author was using foul languages.

    Air Force pilot's have gone to jail for not following directions and
    up the wrong target, what makes our New American Hero more special
    they? Most of you will say its not her fault. I should be blaming the
    and not her. Well you're absolutely right, the media is hyping this
    situation up. It becomes her fault the moment she accepts any of these
    outs. She doesn't deserve them. Period. She did her job, whether she
    signed up for that part of her job or not. You don't get handouts for
    what you're supposed to do. She's no HERO. The real HERO'S are the
    still in Iraq fighting. The real hero is the Iraqi citizen who tipped
    the US off as to her whereabouts. Now that's a hero.

    Author failed to mention how this hero held her ground by covering her
    head under the sheets when her rescuers showed up on scene

      Forgive me, I understand now that the war on Iraq was a farce.
