Honor the troops and bring
By Charlotte Tanner

Don Young, asked us to donate our "miles" so that
our troops and their families can get home? I hope I am misunderstanding
our Congressman. When our President's corporate buddies in Iraq
conduct pracctices that included price-gouging, burning HumVees
when all they need is a tire changed, not completing projects,
giving dirty drinking water to U.S. troops in the field, charging
the government for gas shipments that were never made, putting
troops' lives at risk guarding empty trucks on dangerous convoys
in order to make a buck and a dozen other offenses so unbelievable
that I won't even mention them?
Rep. Young has some nerve. He voted for giving more money to
this President's war, surely that money included the price of
airline tickets? Or was it solely for the empire he is constructing
in the so-called "Green Zone"?
Why didn't Young, Stevens, and Murkowski, honor the troops and
bring them home?
