TIME PERSON OF THE YEAR 2003
This year the award goes to the troops of the United States of America. I guess the leading contender was Mr. George W. Bush, but he was already named in 2000 for being elected in a most controversial fashion and his father was named in 1990.
But I have a question here. The troops usually carry out the orders. They have their own thoughts but they cannot assert their wills. So what is this award for? A condolence of the job well done from the boss to uphold their satisfaction? They really endured some heavy casualties and sufferings beyond our imagination. And they deserve only this award? Had there been a coalition force, US casualties would have been much less. Is this the award for being their in the middle like a pawn carrying out the orders of the war masters?
