Our beloved President unexpectedly cited figure of Iraqi Civilian deaths the other day. Later, a Whitehouse spokesman was quick to add that this was not an official government estimate, but simply what the Prez had heard from the media.
I find it galling/repugnant/sick that our Government could be so careless in their account of life. I get the sense of “Oh, it’s just 30,000 people.” Like that is no big deal! “After all, our national security…(insert propaganda here.)”
Mr. President, life is valuable. Even the lives of those that are politically considered to be enemies are of immense value. Before you go and celebrate a Child born in Bethlehem, just remember this Child in Iraq.
One death is just too much!
