Desperate acts of violence

"We are resorting to desperate acts of violence because we know the establishment of democracy in the United States will be a double defeat for us," Bush said in his weekly radio address as he saluted the emergence of a permanent government.

Doh! My bad -- I misquoted!

Well it's just too bad for soldiers like Kenner native Lance Cpl. Derrick Cothran, whose funeral motorcade stretched for three miles, that Bush couldn't have been honest about the sacrifice that would be required of Americans before he ordered an invasion of Iraq.

And it's just too bad President Bush couldn't be in New Orleans to honor him, and to answer for the misguided cause for which he died.

Shame on YOU! Using Derriks to down HIS president! Derrik knew his sacrifice. He left college to become a marine. His brother T.J. is also a marine. T.J. was givent the option not to go to Iraq (which he has been called to do) since he was the last son of Ted's (Derriks father)to carry on his name. T.J. says he needs to go. This family has a strong belief in God. They are not only serving our country, but serving our religious freedoms. Please do not bring our family down! Derrick loved his country, loved his president, and most of all...Love God.

Being that this goes against what you believe probadly wont be posted!

Oh and by the way...His wife, also a Marine! They all joined the Marines after the war had begun.

God bless the Conthrans!

I mean no disrespect to Derrik or any other American soldier. The ultimate disrespect to them is risking their lives for the false promise of security on the foundation of a lie.

There is no life worth risking for love of country, love of president, or love of God. The only reason to risk death is to protect the life of another. All other causes are propaganda.

You love your religion? You're a Christian? How would Jesus respond to the invasion of Iraq?

Iraq was never a threat to the United States -- that is the great lie.

Saddam Hussein was a bad guy, but he wasn't in a position to threaten anyone in the United States.

We might have wanted to invade Iraq for humanitarian reasons, but that's not the way President Bush sold the war to America. Instead, he fabricated a story about weapons of mass destruction. Meanwhile, the real threat to the United States is growing. Anyone seen Osama bin Laden?

Yes, God bless the Cothrans, and God bless every other American serving honorably to protect their loved ones.

But God damn they who send the innocent to die for a lie.

There's a word for what we do in our democracy to liars in high office: impeachment.

You got me wrong. Freedom of speech, and the freedom to dissent, is the central gospel of the United States revolution, and aside from protecting our own families, the most important reason why soldiers like Derrik should be called to serve our country.

That's why I'm opening up your comment for everyone to read:

How do we honor those who are injured or die when called in the service of a false cause
