Remember the Oily Fallen

On this Memorial Day, take some time to remember the fallen in the First and Second Oil War. Ponder the sacrifices they made to keep America's gas tanks full.

I would also suggest taking the bus to your barbecue today, but RTA cancelled all service- so bike or walk if you can, and at least carpool if you can't.

And just like now the fallen had no idea what and for whom they were really fighting for. Some things never change...... and yes, I am a veteran.

@rfbush- I have nothing but respect for the men and women who serve our country in uniform, and nothing but contempt for those who used them for their own capitalistic and imperial purposes. I have to think that, if more soldiers were aware of the purpose of our actions in the Gulf, more of them would exercise their right to disobey illegal orders- as many have done: http://ivaw.org/warresisters
