A Nation that has Lost its Way
In Pittsburgh, 109 people were recently jammed into one emergency shelter that normally holds 50 to 80 people. One homeless provider reported that he is running out of cots because his supplier, the military, needs them for a possible war against Iraq. -- from the WSWS.

So we are dragging military reservists, many of them police, firefighters, nurses, out of their comfortable beds here in the US and sending them to Kuwait and other countries surrounding Iraq, sleeping in cots that are no longer available to refugees in this country, all in order to create tens of thousands of refugees in Iraq in Bush's oil war. The ultimate aim seems to be that no one with a net worth under $1 million gets a good night's sleep.
