Hey, George! While Laura and Mama Bush are opening their Motherâ€™s Day cards, just take a minute to think about the mothers you’ve sent to fight your freaking wars. And take a nanosecond to think about the mothers of all the troops youâ€™ve used as fodder for your dreams of empire. Yeah, like you give a tinkerâ€™s damnâ€¦.
I doubt that youâ€™re even capable of imagining the kind of Motherâ€™s Day theyâ€™re having, George. Life in your sociopathic bubble doesnâ€™t allow for any reality or empathy, so let me clue you in.
Here are some of the numbers, George, if you can handle the math:
- Right now there are 24, 475 women deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and close to FORTY PERCENT of these women are mothers. To make it easier for you, - that comes to more than NINE THOUSAND women celebrating a dangerous and miserable Motherâ€™s Day in your illegal and immoral debacle.
- For the record, as of April of this year, 85 women have lost their lives in your bloody quest for empire. It figures that some of them were, or might one day have become mothers. Surely most of them had mothers. Thanks to you, they wonâ€™t be celebrating any Motherâ€™s Days ever again. Doesnâ€™t that make you proud?
- And, again for the record, 474 women have been wounded in Iraq as of April, 2007. You donâ€™t dare show us the severity of their wounds, but we can guess that many of these women have been left with massive wounds and missing limbs and emotional scars that they will last for many Motherâ€™s Days to come. Doesn’t that bother you, even a little?
Iâ€™ll bet you didnâ€™t know this about military mothers either, George:
According to a report today from the bi-partisan Joint Economic Committee, youâ€™re short about 35,000 child care centers for military families. Nice going, George. Youâ€™ve also run short on resources for mental health service to help military mothers and their children. Isnâ€™t that just special?
I suppose you were too busy planning your celebrations with Laura and Mama Bush to do anything about this, George. I know, youâ€™ve had a rough couple of months and just couldnâ€™t get around to it. Never mind, thereâ€™s always next year.
But, for just a second, George, imagine what today must be like for Cindy Sheehan and the other mothers who wonâ€™t get Motherâ€™s Day cards from the sons and daughters who never came back from your horrible war. Can you do that?
Thereâ€™s something so wrong with this picture, George. I havenâ€™t even brought up the mothers in Iraq. Thatâ€™s a whole other story that Iâ€™ll talk to you about another time. Right now, itâ€™s Motherâ€™s Day in the USA, George, and youâ€™ve made it a tragic and devastating day for so many American mothers. I hope Laura and Mama Bush have as good a day as the other women Iâ€™ve told you about, George. Itâ€™s the least they can do.
After all, itâ€™s been four Motherâ€™s Days since you and your PNAC buddies lied us into this mess, George, and youâ€™re all still clueless.
