News: US soldier kills 5 comrades
in Iraq. An official remarked,
"not all injuries in war are
physical."

In war, to lose one's life
That is a noble thing.

There is a valid reason
To justify the dying.

But in a war to die
Not by the enemy's hands

Families can only cry...
Where does logic stand?

"Fragging's" just a term
That does not ease the pain

Tears in grief affirm
For how can we explain?

The war's been on too long
Men can fight awhile

It may be right or wrong
Their lives are in exile.

There is a time for breaking
When rust will eat up steel

The soldiers may be dying
Their own kind they will kill.

*tears* We have met the enemy, and it is us ... I've heard that quote, often, especially in "friendly fire" incidents like this - why those in charge should be on the front lines, but no, they hide like the cowards they are. :(

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

The war's been on too long

Far, far too long, with too many multiple deployments and far too many valiant soldiers suffering from PTSD, and I truly hope and pray they all return home soon.
Reviewed by Paul Berube 5/12/2009
So sad what happened. Having served as recently as 2004, I can't understand what would prompt a soldier into doing such a horrible thing.

Powerful poem here Cynthia, you packed quite a punch in a few words
In Christs Love
