Where are the endless newspaper articles reporting the weekly and monthly body counts. Now that Bush isn’t in charge, why did this become non-news?
Where did the homeless go?

Couldn’t tarnish the image of the girlie-boyOTUS. Any news of troops being hurt is not allowed.
GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS! In the meantime, BO has judgement day to look forward to.

AP used to report every death and list the total body count for the war. The seemed to have stopped doing that. I wonder why?

Just saw that photo and I got chills all over. God bless our troops.....our grandchildren will sleep well because of them. Thomas Jefferson said something to the effect that “the tree of liberty is nurtured by the blood of patriots and tyrants”......and our troops are truly great patriots!!
