A protester dressed as the Grim Reaper displays a tally of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq during a rally on April 29, to mark the fourth anniversary of President Bush's "Mission Accomplished" speech in Washington, DC.
President Bush is expected to veto the Iraq funding bill this week that
includes a timetable for the withdrawal of troops.
Next year, if we are still in this war with no schedule for the withdrawl of our troops, I suggest that instead of one Grim Reaper carrying a sign with the number of U.S. soldiers killed in the War in Iraq, we march on Washington with one Grim Reaper per U.S. soldier killed.
Can you imagine if 3,351 Grim Reapers had stood outside of the White House yesterday?
Of course, waiting until one year from yesterday would mean that another thousand of our soldiers would be killed and we simply cannot wait that long.
One more day is too long.
