If It’s So ‘Noble’ …

Go see the BuzzFlash editorial Either the Bush Kids Put Their Lives on the Line for George’s “Noble War” or the Troops Come Home. Also sign their petition.

Like George did, the new generation of Bushes let other Americans do the dying for them.
Bush has derided the mothers and fathers of our nation’s war dead for not wanting any more young American men and women to die in Iraq. “We owe them [the already killed and wounded soldiers] something,” he told veterans in Salt Lake City (even though his administration tried to shortchange the veterans agency by $1.5 billion, according to Maureen Dowd). “We will finish the task that they gave their lives for.”
Yet, not one – not one – of any of Bush’s children or his nieces and nephews have volunteered for service in any branch of the military or volunteered to serve in any capacity in Iraq. Not one of them has felt the cause was noble enough to put his or her life on the line.

Much more, go read.
