    I’m a Soldier in the U.S. Army and when I heard news of the 4000 death mark I became sick to my stomach. I’m lucky enough to have been to Iraq and return home to my family but so many of my fellow Soldiers have not been as fortunate. And in my heart i feel like every one of those 4000 deaths our president is to be blamed for.

    We’ve opened up a discussion on our blog so I can talk to people and answer their questions and hopefully make people understand that not all military are supporting this war and that every one of those deaths was important and unneeded. I’d like it you’d stop by and toss in your two cents.

    I’m all for defending my country but U.S. did not need to be defended from Iraq.

    Hi Mike,
    Thanks for your service to our country.

    The U.S. needed to be defended from a lack of Iraq’s oil. Running out of oil, they figured, would cause the deaths of tens of millions of Americans because without fuel, we can’t make and transport food. To protect us from the threats to our National Security, Cheney and other PNAC members consulted a super computer and/or a marketing think tank and figured out that the way to go would be to sacrifice people in the twin towers and use the 9/11 attacks as a pretext to liberate Iraq’s oil and to build that pipeline across Afghanistan to get the oil and gas from the Caspian Sea basin.

    Soldiers are asked to make the ultimate sacrifice to save other American lives. Collateral damage, civilian deaths are unfortunate, but not completely unacceptable to Cheney and friends. The Americans who died in 9/11, I think were seen by the architects as American heroes who died for the greater good. So, I think the way they really see it is that they are sacrificing 6,000 or 10,000 or even 50,000 Americans when it is all done in order to save millions more.

    Other have countries figured out what is really going on and they have been keeping the fighting going by backing various sides. But they are also ahead of us on energy plans and I think we have a greater demand.

    So, the sacrifice our soldiers make is for a real cause, to save American lives over the next 10 or 20 years while we work on a different energy infrastructure.

    I smelled a rat from the start. The better way would have been to tell Americans the truth and to start converting our energy using some of the billions we have used fighting for the world’s last huge oil reserves.

    The fact that we are running out of energy was announced by the White House four months before 9/11, but who noticed?
