Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

This is the War in Iraq

I ran across this NYT slide show (click on "Multimedia" - top right) of injured American soldiers from the War in Iraq. When reading about the war, most people focus on the number of deaths, which I think stands at around 2,000 right now. Less focused on are the people injured, which in March 2005 was well over 11,000.

And the masses of injured veterans will be around long after the last coffins of those killed are put in the ground. Reminds me of that old song about WWI: Waltzing Matilda.
