Bring the Boys Home

It's time.

According to CNN:

There have been 4,707 coalition deaths [In Iraq since the invasion] -- 4,390 Americans, two Australians, one Azerbaijani, 179 Britons, 13 Bulgarians, one Czech, seven Danes, two Dutch, two Estonians, one Fijian, five Georgians, one Hungarian, 33 Italians, one Kazakh, three Latvians, 22 Poles, three Romanians, five Salvadoran, four Slovaks, one South Korean, 11 Spaniards, two Thai and 18 Ukrainians.

It's not just 4,707 dead. It's 4,707 families shattered.

The Iraqis have had their bloody election. It's time to bring our boys and girls home and cover them in the love and glory that they rightly deserve.

Bring them home, Mr. President. Soon.



Oh, I've just come
From the land of the sun
From a war that must be won
In the name of truth

With our soldiers so brave
Your freedom we will save
With our rifles and grenades
And some help from God

I want to see my family
My wife and child waiting for me
I've got to go home
I've been so alone, you see

You just can't believe
The joy I did recieve
When I finally got my leave
And I was going home

Oh, I flew through the sky
My convictions could not lie
For my country I would die
And I will see it soon

I want to see my family
My wife and child waiting for me
I've got to go home
I've been so alone, you see

When I walked through the door
My wife she lay upon the floor
And with tears her eyes were sore
I did not know why

Then I looked into her hand
And I saw the telegram
That said that I was a brave, brave man
But that I was dead...
