On U.S. casualities in Iraq:

The AP has a story out looking at the issue of America’s reaction to Iraq casualties — some folks are not happy with the article, because there’s some anger over the idea that people shouldn’t be upset because it’s so many less than any other "major" U.S. war, including Vietnam and Korea. It’s a complicated issue, but the answer can be provided in a few words: When the war is a mistake from Day One, then "1" U.S. military death is too many. World War II’s got nothing to do with it.
