FYI, MSF (Medecins Sans Frontiere) has a program in Amman, Jordan, to perform surgery on Iraqi kids with facial disfigurement, etc.For example, an 8 year old boy, half of whose face was sheared off by a car bomb.More info here.Donations can be made here.I'm in for $150
Excellent metaphor, Sleestak.
On the one hand, we should never have fallen for that bastard's nine hundred-odd lies, never should have invaded, especially not when we really needed to keep hunting for Osama bin Laden, and Iraq was one place we knew he wasn't.On the other hand, "You break it, you bought it".But on the gripping hand, the Iraqis want us to leave. They'd rather try to deal with their problems without us. That's reason enough for me to say, "time to go home".That's just what this Navy Corpsman / Marine field medic thinks, anyway.
