At least 26 Iraqis, almost all of them children, have been killed [at least 67 more wounded; & 2 US soldiers killed] by a suicide car bombing in south-eastern Baghdad.

Hi AlaButterfly, I cannot imagine the horror and pain the people of Iraq must experience everyday.  My oldest son is a Marine and just got back home after spending almost a year and a half in Iraq, much of that time I had no contact with him.  What is almost worse is how these experiences will affect and change the lives of the people that are involved, the children the mothers, the fathers, sisters and brothers.  I know that my son was deeply affected by the people that he met over there, especially the children.  He went over as a child himself, with preconceived ideas and came home a completely different man.  When will their pain end and when can they begin to rebuild their lives.

Karen,

God bless your son.  Please tell him I said thank you for his valiant efforts.  Please tell him I am glad he returned home safely & alive.

It is not right for the innocence of youth to be sacrificed for a cause based on madness & lies...driven by insanity, corruption and greed for power, money and oil.
