Terry Rodgers of Gaithersburg,MD and Cindy Sheehan of Vacaville,CA.

An injured soldier and a bereaved mother talk about the president and his war

*
"One day a nurse came in to ask Rodgers if he wanted to meet President Bush, who was visiting the hospital. Rodgers declined."

"I don't want anything to do with him," he explains. "My belief is that his ego is getting people killed and mutilated for no reason -- just his ego and his reputation. If we really wanted to, we could pull out of Iraq. Maybe not completely but enough that we wouldn't be losing people -- at least not at this rate. So I think he himself is responsible for quite a few American deaths."


From "Talking Wounded" by Peter Carlson, The Washington Post Aug.10,2005. "Terry Rodgers Came Back From Iraq a Changed Man, and Not Just Because of the Bomb"


A Mother Questions why her son died

“We need to get our troops out of Iraq. The only reason Bush wants to stay there is because his buddies are getting rich and feasting off the blood of our children.”

Thus spoke Cindy Sheehan during an interview with Timesonline of London.

Contrary to some critics, Ms Sheehan is not an exception. The soldier from Gaithersburg, who returned from Iraq with debilitating injuries, and the mother from Vacaville whose son died there, are on the same wave length. More and more parents and returning soldiers are voicing their doubts and asking "Why did we go to Iraq".
