To Julie and all our British friends.Posted by Pauline on 9/22/04 at 19:19 (160359)
Your captive held in Iraq will be in my prayers. One can only imagine how these families get through these difficult times and how sad that we lost 2 innocent American men these last few days because of the hatred in this world.

Thank you, Pauline. Of course people here are gutted by the events of the last few days, and it's impossible to imagine what that poor man - and his family - are going through. But I don't feel any more for him than I do for the two murdered American hostages and their families. Or, for that matter, than I feel for the 1000+ American and British soldiers, or the 10,000+ Iraqi civilians murdered so far in this unnecessary, cruel, and criminal 'war'.
I did not say this to start a 'political' discussion. I say it because Pauline's post was addressed to me and I've said it in my reply because is what I profoundly feel, and think.
