Family Values?

NPR has been doing stories about soldier's and their families. (Check out one here http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4618906)
The above story is about a soldier who missed the birth of his twin girls while in Iraq. He luckily got back to see them, but was sent back to Iraq a few weeks later. I've heard many other stories of soldiers being killed, leaving a wives and young children fatherless.

These stories sadden me deeply. For a party (George W's) that talks about family values so much, they sure are ripping a lot of families apart. And why? Again, no weapons of mass destruction and no terrorist links to Iraq. This is a shame... And George W won't even allow video of soldier's coffins nor will he attend their funerals.

Who's got family values now?
