    "There's only one person who is responsible for making that decision, and that's me. And there's only one person who hugs the mothers and the widows, the wives and the kids on the death of their loved ones. Others hug, but having committed the troops, I've got an additional responsibility to hug, and that's me, and I know what it's like."
                -- George W. Bush to Barbara Walters, 12/13/02

It also seems to him that only men are dying in this insane war. *seethe*

The first documented homeless veteran of the current conflict was, indeed, a physically disabled single mom.

OMG ... and I thought I was unleashing my scarred imagination.
Good gawd.

Know what I'm working on? A combination of "Stand Down" and FireCircles ... with a dash of RainbowFamily thrown in. Oh ya, and "digger" attitude, too.

Not necessarily...do female soldiers actually get married?

Bush's statement technically does not exclude women...as far as I can find, only two female soldiers have died in Iraq, and neither one was married.

This just gotta be a perfectly innocent question very very badly phrased.
