The Faces of 1,000 Soldiers. Truthout: "Iraq was not a threat to the United States, or to any of their neighbors. ... There are no weapons of mass destruction of any kind in Iraq. There were no connections whatsoever between Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden and the attacks of September 11. The men and women whose faces fill the page below were not told this. They were, in fact, told the exact opposite. They raised their hands and took the oath, they donned their uniform and picked up their weapon, they boarded a plane and flew far from home, and they died. They were doing their duty, and they believed their President. George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Colin Powell and the members of this administration have much to answer for." ... Also here.

At times like this -- when I think about the 1,000+ Americans sent to slaughter and the tens of thousands of innocent people also murdered -- I wish I believed in hell.
