The Numbers Game, part two

Since May 2005, when I posted the "Cost of the War" scroll in my sidebar, it has addded almost $20 billion. 350+ more American soldiers have died.

Oh, and Bush scheduled a five-week vacation, that only Mother Nature could cut short.

This needs to end, now!
I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes
And make it go away
How long...How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long...
'cause tonight...
we can be as oneTonight...

Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won?
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long...How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long...
'cause tonight...we can be as oneTonight...tonight...
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus wonOn...
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sunday Bloody Sunday...
--"Sunday Bloody Sunday", lyrics by U2
