Very thoughtful tribute to the heroes who've made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom . God has taken them gently home. Prayers of strength for the families. Prayers for all our brave coalition heroes who soldier on.

Prairie---may Saddam and bad seedlings no longer be amongst the breathing.

I would say if its like was it supposed to go there's nothing left. The heat of that bomb rips skin and flesh right of the bones and pulverizes what's left. At least whoever was in the building when it was struck died instantly.

Can I just say that I am so freakin proud of our military and our President, along with coalition forces and PM Blaire?!!! They are all doing the right thing. The Iraqi people are going to be completely liberated soon and they will be able to know a freedom like they have never known. God Bless President Bush for having the cajones to do what others wouldn't. He truly is a man's man.

I want to link these threads (using FR's ability to list them by name) to my new site:

I'll have it in a link to the FR Operation Iraqi Freedom Situation Room.

Is that OK with you?

Take a look at the site and let me know, I just kicked it off today..
