Hippo… er… Hipocracy

May 24th, 2005

I just don’t understand the difference. Could someone explain to me, please…

From the New York Times – Last week, Mr. Bush reiterated his position on the Castle bill. “I made it very clear to Congress that the use of federal money, taxpayers’ money to promote science which destroys life in order to save life is – I’m against that,” he said. “And therefore, if the bill does that, I will veto it.”

From the A.P. – As of Monday, May 23, 2005, at least 1,634 members of the U.S. military have died since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count. At least 1,248 died as a result of hostile action, according to the Defense Department. The figures include four military civilians.

Is one kind of death different from the other? Is oil and American emperialism that much more important than the health of American citizens? I think it must be to our leaders.
