Iraq the human toll

As the Iraq war ends its fifth year, a dominant legacy of the conflict has turned out to be the human toll on those who have fought it. The nature and sheer extent of American casualties — officially in the tens of thousands, but hundreds of thousands have sought medical help — has caught the U.S. government off guard. From wounded soldiers who faced dilapidated conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center to troops whose mental problems have been overlooked, Iraq veterans have paid the price.

The human toll of war.. I guess this is one of the reasons why I despise war so much. Often, as in this case, cowards who would have run from serving in a war have no concern about the lives destroyed when they send boys to war. I have no idea why Republicans seem to be able to ignore the hypocrisies of the administration. It does not seem at all Christian to ask boys to loose life and limb for a cause that could have been handle diplomatically -- even if handled slowly.
