I dreamed i saw the bombers riding shotgun in the sky
According to our president, we're winning the war. When I read excerpts like this one (mind you, this is on Yahoo's front page) I don't feel like a winner.
Along Highway 6 on the southern outskirts of Baghdad, Marine helicopters picked up a 5-year-old boy whose face had been blown away by shrapnel, taking him and his father to an emergency medical center.
Woo hoo! We're winning! Don't you feel great?

"We were thinking these Americans want us to be safe," Hassan, 35, said through a translator.
Hassan said 11 members of his family were killed in the incident — his daughters, aged 2 and 5, his son, 3, his parents, two older brothers, their wives and two nieces, ages 12 and 15. His wife, Lamea, who is nine-months pregnant, said she saw her children die.
"I saw the heads of my two little girls come off," said Lamea Hassan, 36. "My girls — I watched their heads come off their bodies. My son is dead."
Hassan and his wife were lying in cots next to each other in the green Army hospital tent. He had staples in his head. She had a mangled hand and shrapnel in her face and shoulder.
"It would be better not to have the baby," Lamea Hassan said. "Our lives are over."
it wasn't too long ago i was proud to be an american.
