Perspective

Wow. Thanks to Rush for pointing this out. From the article "Heroes and Cowards" by Alicia Colon in the NY Sun.

The total military dead in the Iraq war between 2003 and this month stands at about 3,133. This is tragic, as are all deaths due to war, and we are facing a cowardly enemy unlike any other in our past that hides behind innocent citizens. Each death is blazoned in the headlines of newspapers and Internet sites. What is never compared is the number of military deaths during the Clinton administration: 1,245 in 1993; 1,109 in 1994; 1,055 in 1995; 1,008 in 1996. That's 4,417 deaths in peacetime but, of course, who's counting?


Take that, anti-war hippies and MSM jerks! Now, do you think you can stop bemoaning how much you supposedly care about our troops and what a massive failure Iraq is? How it's not worth the risk... the same risk we have in our military during times of peace?? Thanks.
