Sorry, I'm not interested in seeing a person who invaded and attacked four different countries and caused more insecurity and instability in the middle east than any other leader in modern times coming back to power.

Not what I said....

But things are definitely looking up now that we have lost 600 lives getting the WMD program under control.

An image is definitely worth a thousand words. Wow, I can't believe this sort of thing still happens in the world. I wish innocent people had not gone to Iraq to resolve someone else's issues.

Still nothing from my friend....
we are frightened but holding tight to the only info we have which is that his name is not on the published casualty/POW/MIA lists. Yet.

It has been 6 weeks since his last communication.
We are assuming that he is simply somewhere where he cannot get access to the cel phone he has been using to contact us, or somewhere where it would be imprudent to do so.
He was supposed to be coming home soon...

There are no easy answers to any of this. There are no clear-cut sides to be on, no right and no wrong. I saw pictures from Saddam's gassing of the Kurdish people and I also saw pictures of Iraqi children starving and sick in hospitals bare of medicines thanks to the US sanctions. Nothing has been done right in this and the only question I have now is WHY?

How will this be seen, fifty years from now....
and will I have my friend by my side to talk about it, sitting on the porch drinking lemonade and bemoaning getting old? Or will I be sitting alone with his face forever 28 years old held in my mind and heart with sorrow?

I hope and pray that you will have him by your side. I can't imagine how difficult all of this is for you. I'm sure that's all it is-that he is unable to have access for communication.

There has been a bit of good news, though the source could not reveal themselves for security reasons we have heard that Yau is alive and whole, just unable to get word out to anyone for awhile.

Thank you to everyone for your prayers and wellwishes, it means a lot!
