Toggle navigation Senator Dick Durbin. Home Newsroom Press Releases. President, today marks a somber milestone. It was 4 years ago today that President Bush ordered our military to launch a preemptive invasion of Iraq. I can recall the vote on the Senate floor--I have spoken of it many times--which led to fo decision by the President.
We cast thousands of votes as Members of Cresskill NJ sex dating Senate, the House, and most of them are hard to remember. One can never forget a vote cast about war.
You know people will die as a result of that decision. We focus on eliminating the enemy--as we do in our war in Afghanistan--but we know good American soldiers will give their lives as well, and innocent people will die.
I can remember well that decision. It was a tough one, a very difficult one. But now we face 4 years of this war having been completed. As of today, we start the fifth year of this war, a war that has lasted longer than World War II. If the President had known 5 years ago how much this war would cost--in dollars and in lives--would he have still ordered this invasion of Iraq?

I make visits there and try to meet with soldiers and talk to them about how they are doing. I go to the rehab unit where amputees are trying to learn to walk. Some have lost one leg, some two. Some have lost an arm. They are struggling to get their lives back together.
These are real heroes for America, and they are profiles in courage, as they struggle every single day to try to put their lives back together again.

But the people who have paid the highest price, by far, are the men and women of the military and their families. Many soldiers and marines, sailors and airmen in Iraq are on their second, even their third or fourth tour of duty. We are pushing them to the absolute limit.
They have endured great danger. Their families have endured great hardships. As of this morning, it is sad but must be reported that Senior sexy ladies Independence Missouri, American soldiers, including from my home State of Illinois, have given of.

I went out today and I asked to finally see this infamous Building 18, which is about a block away from Walter Reed Hospital. It is a rundown, old motel that our military took over. Under Secretary Looking for w or cpl 27 Aurora Illinois 27, they had this passion to privatize--taking the men and women who were responsible for maintaining this building and removing them and bringing in a private contractor.
That is when the worst happened. The men and women vpl were involved in Illinoi private contract clearly did not do the job. As a result, the Washington Post ran this well-publicized series about mold and mice droppings and evidence of bugs and the general rundown condition of Building an outpatient facility for our soldiers at Walter Reed Hospital.
Every day, we learn--as I have learned xpl in Illinois--of wounded soldiers who have been denied proper medical care, housed in substandard and even deplorable living Looking for w or cpl 27 Aurora Illinois 27, and forced to fight a massive bureaucracy and endure long waits for decisions about disability compensation.

Captain Romig had a cast on up to his hip following surgery, but he had to walk a half a mile on crutches every day to eat lunch. When it rained, mud washed into the cinder-block barracks and coated the cement floors where he was asked to live.
His foot became infected. He ofr had five surgeries Free sex xxx at Waco market it. He still has a hole in the back of his foot and his cor drops. He needs a brace to walk properly. But then the Veterans' Administration refused.
They told Captain Romig he was not entitled to VA health care until he received a disability rating, which takes 2 years.

In the meantime, he would have to pay the bills himself or go without Lookint brace and any other VA health care.
Now, who is Captain Romig? He happens to be a soldier who has served 23 years in the military in the regular Army and 11 in the National Guard. He was one of the lucky ones, though.

He worries about other wounded veterans. In an e-mail he sent me recently, he said: Who is going Lookign help pay the bills for a soldier's family if he or she is disabled?
