Another Dead Soldier Who Didn't Believe in Bush's War


As a kid growing up on Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Christopher Brevard dreamed of military glory. As an adult, he spent the last months of his life fighting a war he didn't believe in.

In e-mails to his family, the Army paratrooper, a father of two who considered himself a patriot, talked about what he saw as the futility of military operations in Iraq. He worried about the chronic exhaustion of the soldiers he led and felt U.S. troops were dying overseas for no good reason.

"He said, 'Mom, I would lay my life down in a heartbeat fighting for America. But if I lose my life over here, I will not feel like I died for my country," said the soldier's mother, Michele Brevard, 51.

On Friday, she received word that her 31-year-old son had been felled by a homemade bomb in Baghdad.

Another casualty of the lies. This is sick. We finally have a debate about what to do and the liars spin it successfully again. The democrats clearly need to hire republican consultants.

Why are the democrats still letting Cheney get away with his bullshit lies about suportring the troops? I live in a small town on oklahoma and whenever the local support group has a fundraiser for the troops, guess who shows up? middle and lower class people who can't stand bush's lies. Not Bush's fans.
