Second Message to Colin Powell:
When the elite of our country shelter their own from harm’s way while allowing the children of others to be killed for the merest political gain, we are already ‘there’. When those same progeny of the elite become President of the United States and send the children of others into an unnecessary war for the sake of political gain, we are already ‘there’.
No, Iraq is not Vietnam. However, when our leaders shirk their duty to defend the Constititution and instead defend their own political interests, we are profoundly ‘there’. We can only hope that Iraq will not have its own sad legacy.
