This is 8-year-old Sami Zaien al-Abideen. He was injured by a roadside bomb that blew up outside his school. Here we see him being carried into a hospital in Kirkuk, Iraq.

Perhaps, we should keep Sami in mind the next time we are listening to our politicians talk about their plans for the Middle East.

done. especially easily, since i have a daughter who will be eight this sunday. it's hard to spend too long dwelling on it, though. it's hard to think about all the people who are being maimed and killed in order to benefit the interests of the wealthy and the power-hungry.

Oh, good hell, yes.

I have a friend who has a bumper sticker that says, "Draft the Bush twins."

I think it will take THAT before our idiot president gets his head out of his ass....

The Bush twins will never go, and wouldn't if they were guys, but yes, I so agree with you. I can't stand Grey's Anatomy, but I watch Baghdad ER...and I hate all war...
