And the reason for this is . . . ????

Jonathan Flores just graduated last year from John Jay High School in San Antonio. He was a polite kid, active in his school, with twin kid brothers who idolized him.

"Flores . . . was killed Tuesday in Iraq by a roadside bomb near Fallujah."

There were no WMDs.

There was no link between Saddam and 9/11.

But Jonathan Flores is dead. Another sacrifice to the egos of a few megalomaniacs with way too much power and way too little humanity. Another sacrifice to making the reputation of a man who doesn't want to be known as just "the son." Another sacrifice, in short, to stupidity.

Jonathan was only 18 years old.
