Sgt. Omar Mora and Sgt. Yance T. Gray who were part of the seven soldiers that wrote the NYT Op-Ed, "The War As We Saw It", both died this week in a vehicle accident in Western Baghdad.

Thank you for the courage to stand up for your country, not once but twice. God bless your souls. RIP

The piece they wrote

showed a huge amount of commitment to this country.

They're just numbers to Bush, that's all.

I would extend your idea ...

They're just numbers to Bush, that's all.

to say that I believe that they are not even numbers to Bush. His stubborness, his myopia, his religious zeal render them inconsequential.
Just like the other average Americans who couldn't buy their way into Yale and its Skull & Bones, or get a posting to the Texas Air Nat'l Guard, or get bailed out by their daddy's rich friends time and time again, or who suffered in the 9th ward of New Orleans.
I have heard that Bush sleeps well at night - doublethink personified. To continue the 1984 analogy, these two brave soldiers, who showed more guts in more ways than most people who have ever lived, they are unpersons to Bush.

Ouch!

but I hear the truth hurts.....

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

All of our men and women in uniform are heros

they will fight and die for us and each other.

It is not only a tragedy that their blood is being spent to buy time for the Iraqi government to get their act together, it is treasonous!

This brought me to tears.

May they find peace. May their families understand how grateful their country is for the courage they had by stepping up to serve, and the integrity they showed us all by speaking their minds. May we all be so courageous when called upon.
