A very high price

Reuters, October 24:

“The human toll for the U.S. military in the Iraq war is not limited to the nearly 2,000 troops deaths since the March 2003 invasion. More than 15,220 also have been wounded in combat, including more than 7,100 injured too badly to return to duty, the Pentagon said. Thousands more have been hurt in incidents unrelated to combat.”

We rarely read about these figures, though they should disturb us as much as the nearly 2000 dead American troops and tens of thousands of murdered Iraqis.

A very high price for a lie.
