There will be more deaths needed to ensure peace with Iraq. Well, this is what President George W. Bush says.
With the death poll slightly over 2,000, the invasion of Iraq will likely lead to more fatalities. In a speech at Bolling Air Force Base, Bush said the “heroes” of the war have to make these death sacrifices to ensure the Unites States its justice over the country. According to Bush this is pertinent to stay protected from terrorism.
“The terrorists are as brutal an enemy as we have ever faced, unconstrained by any notion of common humanity and by the rules of warfare. No one should underestimate the difficulties ahead,” said Bush.
Times like this make us hope for a utopian society, full of peace and stability. It hurts to hear the president condone war, death and murder of our own people. It seems that the U.S. troops serve as crash-test dummies or guinea-pig experiments for Bush to declare his nobility over Iraq.
Yes, we do want peace and want to be safe from terrorism. However, we do not want our own people to die in order for these wants to happen. As long as we continue to war with other countries, more wars will sprout as a result of it.
Wars have plagued U.S. history, dating back to the Revolutionary War, and the chain does not seem to be nearing its end. When we turn on the TV or read a paper stating the president made such a concerned, yet heartless statement, what ideas do the youth gain from the government? Are we promoting war and violence?
Just as we all learned as children, there are other ways to solve problems rather than violence. Although it may be overrated, talking things out, even on a governmental level, is the common cure to some of the most complex issues that plague the world. How many more lives will have to be lost for Bush to stop the madness? By the fatalities so far, we guess no number is too great.
We are upset that our president is an advocate of war and sends innocent troops to die for a country that barely does anything for their benefit. Soldiers, young and old, continue to lose their lives in an endless war.
We are praying and sending our wishes out to the troops overseas and in the U.S. that are fighting in a blank mission to add a few more paragraphs to the president’s bragging rights memorandum. Good luck in the great American battle!
