Chicago Tribune asks - Is our `way of life' really worth defending?

This explains why the war on terror isn't important to them.

They seemed teed off that Bush is asking us to live normal lives and go on as we were (in other words, our way of life), and hasn't asked us to make sacrifices. It seems only the sons of poor people are risking their lives in Iraq. If you know me, I have 2 sons in the military, one of which has served there. I quote...

Bush said. "Do your business around the country. Fly and enjoy America's great destination spots. Go down to Disney World in Florida, take your families and enjoy life the way we want it to be enjoyed. (would he rather we live in a cave - which is what would happen if the dems had to protect us)

He continues..... "No one has a problem with enjoying special treats with the family. But the invasion and occupation of Iraq is headed toward its third anniversary. To this day, Bush has not called for a national sacrifice to match the courage of the soldiers dying in Iraq. Not even giving up our plasma TV screens and our video games. He says our soldiers are protecting our way of life. We have yet to question whether it is a way of life worth living.
