Tears of a President

"Tears trickle down the face of President George Bush as he attends the award ceremony of a young Marine who died saving the life of colleagues.

Cpl Jason Dunham threw himself onto a grenade hurled by insurgents in Iraq.

His body absorbed most of the blast, saving the lives of fellow soldiers".

I wonder how many people felt this way when he announced another 20,000 troops. I wonder how the people of Iraq feel every single day. I wonder if that tear reveals guilt/humanity or is a cynical ploy to obtain some empathy.
