[click the Title: One Tin Soldier *Warning* Very Graphic. Please if you are VET, or have family in Iraq, or if you have PTSD do NOT watch.Please do also read the Post Below about Abandonment of Our Country...not just a cat.The two posts are meant to be read together. And yes, this letter is for We The People, not the Illiterate King.]
I watched you drop in to Iraq for a little visit this weekend.You went to a base and made others come to you, and you snuck there in the Dead of Night.We know you went to get more photos for your Legacy Album. You did not walk around the burned bombed out streets of rubble. You made the Troops stand outside in 110 degree heat , and they stood and waited while you got a fresh shirt and adjusted your make up. You made them stand and wait in the Heat and Grime and Sand.You treated them as if they were merely Toy Soldiers in Your Photo Op.
They are Not your Toy Soldiers, they are Mothers, Daughters, and Sons, and Fathers, and Brothers and Sisters. They are there occupying a land where they are not loved or respected. I looked at them wiping sweat from their brows and I could not help but wonder WHO will not be there in That Picture tomorrow or the next week. And Mr.Bush did you think about that ? We learned that you "cry a lot "according to your latest "Book". You do not know what tears are until you have held a greiving mother in your arms and felt the heaviness of her tears.You do not know what tears are until you have had to tell a grieving Child that Their Daddy is not coming home. You do not know what tears are until you have seen a Mother handed that Folded Flag by a freshly dug grave. You do not know Tears until you have seen a Father dust fresh snow off His Son's Grave.
Mr.Bush we are Telling you to Bring the Troops Home From Iraq NOW. We are telling you it is Over. The Damage is Done. It can Not be Undone. We are telling you NO, you may not treat them Like Toy Soldiers ANYMORE. We are telling you that YOU have Failed the People of Iraq, the People of the Middle East, and the People of the World, and the People of the US. It is Time to end your Delusional Quests and bring OUR People Home, for the sake of the Troops and the Iraqis.
