HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO KILL ONE PERSON?

Interesting diary discussing the increasing cost of the war in Iraq, both monetary and human.

Sobering thoughts.

I heard earlier today that 12 American military have been killed in Iraq this November. Of course we never count the Iraqis, for some reason they don't appear to be people to us.

The money is bad. The lives lost are much worse! And again, nothing is said about the way those who will return will never be the same...

I think it "pays" to read the link very carefully before we make what we perceive to be harmless remarks, DK. It's happened to me before, and it's not pleasant being that embarrassed!
