For some reason I think we've forgotten thats its war.
not a tea party, but WAR.
people die, if people want a war with no deaths, well it isn't going to happen.
Maybe most people don't realize they really really shoot and kill one another in a real war,
or something??? I don't know.
I am certainly not happy that over 4K american soldiers are dead,
but that isn't too bad for a war that has lasted this long.
