The Bubble President

Would the world be a better place if W spent less time time talking to hand-picked people who agree with him (left), and instead spent time with people directly affected by his policies (right)?

I think so. In fact, I think if officials had to personally acknowledge every person killed in wars they are responsible for, they'd reflect a little more on what they are about to do.

Eleven people, most of them women and children were killed when a house was bombed during a U.S. raid north of Baghdad early Wednesday, police and relatives said. The U.S. military acknowledged four deaths in the raid that they said netted an insurgent suspect in the rural Isahaqi area, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) north of the capital.
