Dear Mr. Bush,

Your vice president today promised that our time in Iraq would come to an end--in 2009. By then, my son will be four years old. Think of the four-year-olds in Iraq then, children that have known nothing but your war. Will they know that it is over? Or will they only be starting to fight it?

This is one of the most succinct and saddest things I have read in a long time. What is even sadder is that I have noticed no public outcry about the Vice President's remarks. As a nation, we seem to have hunkered down and become numb, waiting until it's over. Sort of the way torture victims survive by detaching themselves mentally and emotionally from what is being done to them. We listen to the administration's unrealistic optimism the same as we listen to Tom Skilling's weather forecasts, only with less confidence.
