Just in case you haven’t looked at the sidebar counter (scroll down a bit), the number of U.S. fatalities in Iraq surpassed 1,900 today.
Somewhere in this country,
four nine families are getting the sad news that one of their loved ones was killed in Iraq. Some of them will be told "You can be assured that your son died for a good cause", or words to that effect.
Feel free to reflect on exactly what that supposed "good cause" is. Because it is lost on me.
