no homecoming this month

I got a call from Kuwait yesterday. quicksilver1 will not be returning home on the 23rd as we anticipated. He'll be extended a minimum of 5 more weeks, but he anticipates it could be another six months.

I keep thinking about George W. Bush's decision to keep our loved ones out there in harms way for so long. It just doesn't seem fair that one man has the power to make the decision to disrupt so many of our lives like this. Those people are needed here. We need them. They aren't just soldiers, they are people's brothers and sons and lovers and friends and husbands. Why does he have the right to rip those people out of our lives for so long, possibly to never see again?
