Pobre do país que precisa de Heróis

President Bush awarded the military’s highest honor to a 19-year-old soldier who was killed in Iraq after falling on a grenade to save his crew members. Mr. Bush presented the award to the parents of Army Pfc. Ross A. McGinnis at a White House ceremony on Monday.
Private McGinnis, of Knox, Pa., was killed in a Baghdad neighborhood on Dec. 4, 2006 when a grenade was thrown into the gunner’s hatch of the Humvee in which he was riding. Mr. Bush noted that Private McGinnis had enough time to jump out and save himself but instead dropped into the hatch and covered the grenade with his own body, absorbing the fragments. He was killed instantly. All four crew members were saved.
“When Ross McGinnis was in kindergarten, the teacher asked him to draw a picture of what he wanted to be when he grew up,” Mr. Bush said. “He drew a soldier. Four men are alive because this soldier embodied our Army values and gave his life.”
No mundo de moranguinho ideal, onde meu eu-lírico vive, um cara de 19 anos morrendo em uma guerra estúpida que não deveria nem ter sido iniciada, deveria ser motivo para botar o presidente na cadeia. Pelo visto, no atual momento político, é mais um instrumento de propaganda.
