SO...?

25 March 2008

So.....?

Was there ever a more arrogant, snide word uttered than that by the Vice President of the United States when asked how he felt about the fact that 2/3 of the citizens in this country feel that the cost of the Iraq war in both lives and money was not worth it.

"So....?" he answered, with that shit-eating smirk/sneer on his face.


So what if the vast majority of the citizens feel this is a mistake, we should not be there, it's not worth it, and want the war to end.

So what?

Who cares?

Anybody who has doubts and who wants to experience an infinitesimal piece of the cost of this war needs to watch Ellen Spiro and Phil Donohue on Bill Moyers, talking about their movie "Body of War," which tells the story of Iraq war veteran Tomas Young who was shot and paralyzed less than a week into his tour of duty. Three years in the making, "Body of War" tells the poignant tale of Young's journey from joining the service after 9/11 to fight in Afghanistan, to living with devastating wounds after being deployed to Iraq instead.

I challenge Dick Cheney to watch this film -- or even Moyers' report on it -- and sneer into the camera.... "so....?"

There's no excuse to miss the show. The hour is played in its entirety here: http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/03212008/watch.html and if you can't watch it, the transcript is also provided (it obviously lacks the emotional punch of the video). But I urge everyone who missed the show on TV to watch it on the Internet.

This weekend, we passed the 4,000 body count of American soldiers killed in Iraq.

So...?

Add to that the thousands of young men and women who have come back broken in body, in mind, in spirit, never to be whole again.  Add to that their families, whose lives are irrevocably damaged. 

So...?

Add to that the hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians, many of them children, who have been killed in this war, started with a lie.

So....?

Add to that the billions of dollars we pour into this war every week, while Americans are losing their jobs, their houses, their self respect, their hope.  Add to that those people who will die in this country because they can't afford health care.  Add to that the price of gas, almost reaching $4.00 a gallon in California this week

So....?

Add to that the corruption related to this unjust war that goes unchecked in Iraq and in this country, the shady dealings that have lined the pockets of Cheney cronies at the expense of American lives.

So...?

Bush doesn't care. Cheney definitely doesn't care. They feel no responsibility for the country's pain because they know they have us over a barrel and nobody is going to do a damn thing to make anybody in this administration accountable for anything.

The country is in pain, Mr. Cheney, because of the actions of your administration.

So...?

Screw you all, he seems to say.
