...Ole Fearless Leader and Family:
"BuzzFlash is urging George W. Bush to prove that his "noble war" is not just for poor, middle class and rural Americans to die in. Of ten eligible offspring of the children of George Herbert Walker and Barbara Bush, not one is serving in the armed forces, let alone in Iraq.
BuzzFlash.com is urging Americans to sign a petition that reads: "I demand that George W. Bush's daughters, and his eligible nieces and nephews, serve in Iraq to prove their support of Bush's 'noble war for a noble cause.' If the Bush family does not believe in 'sacrificing' for the war and is not willing to put their lives on the line, then Bush must bring the troops of middle class, rural and poor Americans home now."
"If George W. Bush believes that Americans should 'sacrifice' their children for his 'noble war' in Iraq, why are no Bush children serving in the armed forces or risking their lives in the Middle-East?" asks Mark Karlin, editor and publisher of BuzzFlash.com
The petition asks: "Why do George W. Bush, his siblings, and their children think that the war is 'noble' enough for kids like Casey Sheehan to die in, but not them?
"Sign this petition, demanding that the Bush sibling children serve in George's 'noble war' or he must bring the troops home now. Because if it's not 'noble' enough for the Bush family to risk their lives fighting for, it's just a disastrous graveyard for poor and middle class Americans, dug deep to advance Bush's partisan agenda.
"Bush can be brave with other people's children, because he has nothing personally to risk. Sign the petition now on behalf of the lives of the real Americans."
The petition, along with the names of the Bush offspring who are service eligible, an extended family photo, and an Uncle Sam recruitment poster can be found at this link.
