Cheney, Powell, Bush Pay Tribute to New Saudi King, Not Slain Ohio Soldiers

Does it bother anyone else (but me) that today, Vice President Dick Cheney, former President George HW Bush and General Colin Powell , former Secretary of State, traveled to Saudi Arabia to pay tribute to the new Saudi King Prince Abdullah and to pay their respects to the late King Fahd............rather than paying tribute and respect here at home to the 20 soldiers from Ohio recently killed in Iraq?

Cheney, Powell and Bush's eldest son, the President, initiated the Iraq conflict, in purposely misguided retribution for 9/11, which was masterminded and executed mainly by Saudis.

There's nary a shred of evidence that Cheney, Powell, the Bush family or the Saudis give a damn about those Ohio soldiers or their families.

A tribute will be held this Monday evening at the Cleveland, Ohio Convention Center. I truly pray that Cheney, Powell or any Bush will have the decency to attend it.

If so, it would be the first memorial to a US solider slain in Iraq attended by Cheney or a Bush.

Where is the anger? Why are Americans not shouting out their anger? Where is the "I'm mad a hell, as I'm not going to take it anymore?"
