Lone Vet Report

I don't know what I will do from here, it looks like this war will go on for another year, that is the best the dems have come up with so far, very depressing. One more year will cost us maybe a thousand more lives and many thousands of injured soldiers, the Iraqis will take the hardest hit, how many more must die for these criminals is beyond me.

I have been off line for a few weeks but now have high speed and will get back to writing what I see and hear. I will continue to protest but in my own way, joining others when needed but mostly by myself.

The dems say they don't have the votes to over-ride a veto so they are trying to compromise in order to get something passed. I understand what they are saying but hate this idea. How do you tell the families of those who will die during this compromise that you did the best you could? All who will die or be torn apart from this point are senseless casualties and their sacrifices are for nothing----wasted.
