War: Why American Soldiers Die

As crazy as some of my beliefs may seem, they are strengthened when I hear about how many deaths are coming of this so-called "war." How many innocent lives have to be sacrificed? Weren't all the lives that were ended on 9/11 enough? I have friends who have been sent to Iraq, and it is so sad to hear stories from the ones who don't believe in being there. Being on "dead body patrol," driving around picking up bodies, tagging them, and throwing them in the back of the truck can effect a big mental strain on the toughest of men and women.

I don't think George Bush is on track to snuff out terrorism by going to war in the Middle East. Two wrongs don't make a right. I think that the people responsible for the events on 9/11 should be brought to justice, but it is now 2006...why are we still wasting lives in Iraq? -- John Twilla, Hilltop H.S.
