“Bush cautioned that victory will require continued sacrifice. He became emotional as he read a letter left on the laptop computer of Marine Cpl. Jeff Starr, who was killed while fighting in Ramadi this year.

‘If you’re reading this, then I’ve died in Iraq,’ Bush read, his voice cracking. ‘I don’t regret going. Everybody dies, but few get to do it for something as important as freedom. It may seem confusing why we are in Iraq, but it’s not to me. I’m here helping these people, so they can live the way we live.'”

It probably would have been wise to first find out if they want to live the way we live.
