Cui Bono?

Check out the photos of US military in Iraq at Mahablog, then sing a little song:

"Well, come on mothers throughout the land,
Pack your kids off to [fill in the blank].
Come on fathers, don't hesitate,
Send 'em off before it's too late.
Be the first one on your block
To have your boy come home in a box.

And it's one, two, three
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is [fill in the blank].
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die."

In April 2003 President Bush told the world, "In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed." Uh-huh!

Then, read about DU (depleted uranium) from a military expert, and finally decide what you will say to the next young person who expresses any interest -- ANY -- in signing their lives away on the dotted line.
