KARMA, Iraq, Nov. 3 — The bullet passed through Lance Cpl. Juan Valdez-Castillo as his Marine patrol moved down a muddy urban lane. It was a single shot. The lance corporal fell against a wall, tried to stand and fell again.

His squad leader, Sgt. Jesse E. Leach, faced where the shot had come from, raised his rifle and grenade launcher and quickly stepped between the sniper and the bloodied marine. He walked backward, scanning, ready to fire.
Shielding the marine with his own thick body, he grabbed the corporal by a strap and dragged him across a muddy road to a line of tall reeds, where they were concealed. He put down his weapon, shouted orders and cut open the lance corporal’s uniform, exposing a bubbling wound.
Lance Corporal Valdez-Castillo, shot through the right arm and torso, was saved. But the patrol was temporarily stuck. The marines were engaged in the task of calling for a casualty evacuation while staring down their barrels at dozens of windows that faced them, as if waiting for a ghost’s next move.........

we MUST bring our men and women home now. we cannot allow them to be killed or wounded FOR NO REASON. we DO NOT BELONG IN IRAQ. we never have. WE created the violence there both against us and against themselves.

it cracks me up how Big Joe is all "'Fire Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.¢ Convene an international crisis conference on Iraq, bringing Europeans and Arab countries together." .. like AS OF YESTERDAY. This guy is such a putz. If he gets reelected.. *shudder* I hope to G-d that the people of CT WAKE UP and see a vote for Lieberman is a VOTE FOR WAR, despite his campaign rhetoric.

I have to confess, I didn't canvass for Lamont, but I did for Murphy (our local congressman) and it seems like people WANT change. I just don't belive it will happen with LieberPutz.
