WHY?

Cindy Sheehan asked President Bush, "Why did my son have to die in Iraq?"
Another mother asked President Kennedy, "Why did my son have to die in Viet Nam?" Another mother asked President Truman, "Why did my son have to die in Korea? Another mother asked President F. D. Roosevelt, "Why did my son have to die at Iwo Jima?"
Another mother asked President W. Wilson, "Why did my son have to die on the battlefields of France?
Yet another mother asked President Lincoln, "Why did my son have to die at Gettysburg?"
And yet another mother asked President G. Washington, "Why did my son have to die near Valley Forge?

Then long, long ago, another mother asked, "Heavenly Father, why did my Son have to die on a cross outside of Jerusalem?"

The answer rings throughout the ages: "That others may have life, hope and dwell in peace, happiness and freedom."

you see, viet nam was senseless, this war was baseless, and korea didn't need to happen. all these poor bastards died. and for what? so some asshole could call himself a wartime president and steal some more oil from the middle east? these men didn't die defending their country. they died because some bureaucrats in washington had something to gain from their deaths. they didn't sacrifice their lives. they were robbed of their lives.
