This is an easy one

Posted by: Jambo / 2:49 PM

From today's Strib:

Sheehan wants to challenge President Bush to specify the "noble cause" for which her son gave his life. Fasnacht, the mother of one of 25 Minnesotans who have died in the war in Iraq, would like to answer that.

Michael Fasnacht, 25, of Mankato, believed the mission was about defending freedom, spreading democracy and defeating terrorism, said Marny Fasnacht, 58, of Janesville.

To suggest that he chose to risk his life for a cause that was neither noble nor necessary feels to Fasnacht like an insult to his intelligence.

It's pretty simple, a 25 year old Minnesotan was lied to by his president and his commander in chief and the young man believed him. There's no dishonor in that. At least not for the soldier.


I think it's a testimony to his loyalty.
