Very well said, nation building is really at the core of why we're there. If we were to build Iraq as we so desired, we would have access to a major portion of the world's oil, something that Bush and Cheney were willing to acquire at the cost of American lives. So on this day of sorrow as we mourn the lost lives of these brave warriors, we also must keep in mind whether or not we are willing to stay silent as another year of a wasted war creates yet more lives lost.
