Our war's effect on children

A few weeks back I posted an article on how hypocritical it is for us to scream at the violence that occurred at Virginia Tech, while ignoring the violence that is occurring in Iraq. This week, Save the Children has issued a report indicating that one in eight Iraqi children (age 5 and under) died of disease or violence in 2005. This is unbelievable. That fact that this has largely been caused by our mis-intentions and mis-management is disgusting. Our president speaks of freeing the Iraqi people. If this is his vision of freedom, he is more religious than I thought!
