Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

Hi Jospeh,

I feel so sad about Jason. I am sure he was a great soldier and he died doing what he wanted to do. It's really heart breaking for me to see tears in Micheal's eyes (Jason's father). He is a great friend of mine and i feel helpless that i cannot do any thing for him.I have a son and can imagine the pain of losing a son.

May Jason's family have the patience to bear this great loss.

I appreciate you wrote

Regards
Ubaid

"Rainman" claims to have read "some" of the comments posted to this article, and says: "You people need to get a life. Don't blame the American soldier for every horror that happens...If you do not support the war that is your choice but leave the military out of it."

Well, I have read all 20 comments posted before Rainman's contribution, and not one even mentioned the American military. Where blame was laid, it was laid on the American politicians for instigating this evil war, or on the American people for allowing them to do it. Many of the comments were merely heartfelt expressions of condolence. "Rainman" would do well to reread them all.

"Rainman" also said "if you are ashamed of being an American pack your bags and leave." I have a better idea: If you are one of those of our countrymen who have made us so ashamed, YOU pack your bags and leave.

"Need to get a life?" We all have lives, even "Rainman." But "Rainman" needs to get a heart, a soul, and, above all, a brain.

Sincerely,
Verne D. Fukawi

Rainman

You people need to get a life. Dont blame the american Soldier for every horror that happens. I have read some of the comments posted and if you are ashamed of being an American pack your bags and leave but you will not because you have it made living in the USA. We did not ivade for the oil. If you do not support the war that is your choice but leave the military out of it. If we do not kill the terrorist in Iraq it will follow over to the streets of America.

Oh my senators, being body-and-soul Rethuglican minions, would scarcely notice.

Pook

I invite you all to send this article to your senators. I'm sure they won't care. They have no soul, but it would be good to see if they have the balls to read this. Don't waste your time sending it to Dubya. He could care less.

ChezzaJT

Words can not express the sadness that I feel for you. My eyes are full of tears and my heart is aching. All I can do is send you my love and wish for peace.

Hugs and love,
Cheryl in Australia.

Aunty Ism

May your heart stay strong, and someday know peace. May your country someday know peace. May the false divisions between your people someday be seen for what they are: tools of evil people to arouse the basest of instincts, to create fear and to form a basis by which "leaders" may insight us-ism versus them-ism in order to increase their own power and control.

I am so sorry that my country has been the foremost instigator of the chaos that you must endure. May we also someday be rid of the despicable despots now in power.

Keep writing your stories. This must be known.

That little george, etc. are war criminals is no issue with me.

Nor is it an issue that we Americans as a people are primarily to blame for allowing them to indulge their ignorant fantasies.

But I think it is also important to note that the reality described in this post is Iraqis -- the equal of any degenerate (such as little george) that we can provide -- against Iraqis.

"Blood and destruction shall be so in use
And dreadful objects so familiar
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial."

Needless to say, the above is Shakespeare, from "Julius Ceasar".

annie

how utterly horrendous. what could anyone possibly say. i am so very sorry for your pain and grief, for all the loved ones in your family, and for all of iraq. i feel my country is to blame, of course .

Patrick Michels

Has anyone noticed that while such horrors occur daily in the real-world Iraq America remains fascinated by the adventures of maniacal serial killers and sociopaths. Just look at how many films have come out recently whose plots revolve around the exploits of sadistic murderers. And look at how all of the CSI variant TV shows feature plotlines that involve elaborate serial killer themes. And in both formats the killer is, if not the hero, certainly fetishized. I've begun to wonder if despite the newsmedia's undercoverage of the carnage in Iraq the American psyche isn't expressing through its interest in slasher movies that it is well aware of the real violence we've unleashed.

Meanwhile most Americans are more concerned with who is on American Idol, than this woman's, and her nation's absolute hell. It's damn time Americans did something to hold those responsible for setting this nightmare into motion.

For what it's worth writer, I'm really sorry that we couldn't stop this madness, because a lot (certainly not enough) tried.

Teresa Nielsen Hayden

I am so very sorry for your loss of your nephew, and for the horrible circumstances under which you retrieved his body.

So many of us tried to stop Bush, but he stole two elections, and his own people are too busy robbing the country to impose any restraints on him.

Ninbus

I'm ashamed to be an American.

Rosemary Molloy

Why is this report, with pictures, not in every daily newspaper, on every television channel, on billboards and posters and flyers in every city in the country?

President Bush, when queried about the horrors at the Baghdad morgue, joked "Where do they keep the giblets?! He he he . . . them folks ought to use them resources and make a nice stew!" Mr. Bush then proceeded to kill a small cat and began feasting on it's still warm flesh.

Susan

It is a horror you are living, and I am so very sorry. I will send it on to the White House also - maybe if they get hundreds of copies, it will sink in, this horror they created.

I am so sorry the American people did not stop them. I tried.

TuiMel

My condolences to you and your family. They are sent with sincerity and profound shame.

Steve Jones

For what it's worth, I sent a link to this article to the White House, under the title, "Read it and weep, you sumbitch".

I received in return:

"On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence. We appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions. The President is committed to continuing our economic progress, defending our freedom, and upholding our Nation's deepest values.

The war criminals who started this illegal war should be put on trial and punished. This is murder, this is foul, this is evil. God help us.

Robert P. Ewing

I know that nothing I could say could lessen your grief. I am so sorry that my country has created a situation in which such losses occur with such horrible regularity.

bobeedee

Iraq was invaded so that the US could steal the oil. It was always about the oil. It will always be about the oil.

My wish is for the Americans to leave now.

Laura

My heart goes out to you and your family, for the loss of your dear nephew, and for the horrors you have had to endure. I am so very sorry.

Ben Rosengart

Nobody and nothing can match your reality.

I'm so sorry.
