Arizona's Iraq War Dead

We should never lose sight of the simple fact that the lives of every soldier is in the hands of their Commander in Chief. His duty is to make every effort to ensure that they are not needlessly placed in harms way and that they are provided the equipment and training and strategy they need to suceed. If they fail, the blame lies always with the Commander; never with those who gave their last full measure.

Bush's decisions, to prosecute a voluntary war of aggression against an impotent and already neutralized foe, and then to utterly neglect the prudent planning for the aftermath of that war, to go in fast and cheap without the mass and equipment needed for the mission, cost these citizen-soldiers their lives. The blood of every American soldier who dies in Iraq is on Bush's hands as much as it is on the hands of the Iraqi irregulars: no wonder he refuses to attend their funerals.

Here are the names of the brave and selfless Arizonans to date who won't be coming back to their families because of Bush's lies and poor judgement. Read their names and honor their sacrifices. They died for duty and their nation's honor. My sorrow and condolences to their families and friends.
