Clay Warren Hunt
I try not to post my political views on my blog. So much ranting and raving (on both sides) is done already, my little grain of sand contribution won't make much difference in the cacophony. But sometimes I just cannot let an event pass by without commenting and/or bringing it to the attention of others.
Such an 'event' happened on the 31st of March. A young man whose name I did not know committed suicide on that day. His name was Clay Warren Hunt and he was a veteran of our War of Choice in Iraq.
Enough has already been said about those political leaders (of both parties) who instigated and authorized this unnecessary war with Iraq. I cannot add anything new other than to again express my disgust and revulsion at those chicken hawks like George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and the repulsive Paul Wolfowitz who lied to take this country into war with Iraq.
This posting is only about marking the memory of this one young man who sacrificed his life on the altar of the unparalleled greed and ego of all those in Congress and the Bush Administration who took this country into a totally unnecessary war with Iraq.
This young man's agony ended on March 31st. However, the pain of his premature death will have to be endured by his family and friends for the rest of their lives. Such a waste.
Again, sorry for the 'down' posting but this was just something I had to say.
