Sleeping on the Job

As much as I detest the war and the administration that pushed it on the world, I do feel bad for the troops who are there. American and British soldiers have died or been injured not just in needless, counter-productive combat, but have also been the victims of gross military blunders and incompetency. Someone sent these pics to me today, showing the sleeping arrangements for our brothers and sisters who have been sent into harms way, supposedly to protect our freedoms and supposedly with great honor and dignity. Again, I encourage you to come to the march Saturday, April 5 at UC Berkeley at 10am.

'&'; $paginate_self = preg_replace("/&page=[^&]*&/", "&", $paginate_self); $paginate_self = substr($paginate_self, 1, strlen($paginate_self) - 1); if($paginate_self == '&') $paginate_self = ''; else $paginate_self = htmlentities($paginate_self); $paginate_self = basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) . "?${paginate_self}page"; ?> Posted by Kristina at April 4, 2003 10:44 AM

That images of soldiers sleeping in holes and sleeping sitting up in a sand storm are just too potent. The president has never in his life faced such extreme conditions. This war makes me sick! (bleauuugh!)
