Why Hope Is Needed

This report in the Washington Post is the kind of thing that makes me wish that the possibly hopeful article noted in my prior post is true. A bomber drove a car up to the entrance to a hospital in Mahmudiyah. The 31 dead were mostly women and children. Why? US soldiers were in the process of handing out toys to the kids. Four of the soldiers were wounded.

This is the reality of who the enemy is. How can anyone in good conscience propose to abandon the Iraqis to the tender ministrations of these murderers?
