    Why do we continue to put our soldiers in harm's way by not armoring the vehicles they're driving in through this crap-hole they call Iraq. That place is not worth the time, money, or lives that have been taken for the sake of a freedom that their religion will never allow to flourish. May God Bless this kid for dying heroically, although needlessly, in the service of his country. If the money were spent protecting our soldiers instead of shoring up Halliburton's profits in the region, maybe he would've survived.

    My prayers are with the family. I'm sure that they are proud to say that their son is a fallen hero.
