“God, I am so angry and scared for the people over there, how scared
they must be of dying and not even for their country. All I can say,
I know who I will not vote for.”

I have just read the interview with USA and I must say I am very touched and I agree with all that has been said. I am a mom, whose daughter has signed up for the Marines, she has to retake her ASVAB test and then I guess what for her date, but I think she is having thoughts of not going at all now (I hope to God she will not).

The reason for this, is because her boyfriend went to boot camp in March, did his MCT, starts MOS on Thursday and has already been told that his unit will be shipped to Iraq on 9/1.

To say the least, he is now shitting in his pants, especially since his Job is Motor T.and we all know many of them are dying. His recruiter told him and my daughter many B.S. stories, I tried to warn them of this, but they would not listen; now they are realizing that he lied about many things.

I find it awful, that the man who calls himself the president is sending these kids to fight for nothing, especially when he went AWOL.

Why is he not sending some of his family members (sure hope that man has a difficult time sleeping). I think it down right a disgrace that these young kids with hardly any Military experience have to go over there and risk their lives for their GREED, these young men and women are not there defending their country.

It woud be different if they would be going after the person responsible for 9/11, whatever happened to that. What is wrong with America, has not enough bad happened in the world, such as the Holocaust, Vietnam, etc to learn a lesson. Who are we, to go over to Iraq and try to mess with their religion and their beliefs, America would not accept it if it would be done here.

The Hell with Sadam, our leader if you ask, is no different, being that our young soldiers are dying; I believe it was called collateral Damage?
this is America and not Iraq? God, I am so angry and scared for the people over there, how scared they must be of dying and not even for their country. All I can say, I know who I will not vote for.

Is there not a way to have the administration read the interview, sure would make the P?.. feel a little like s?
