Here’s how the figures add up, just for Americans.

The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have thus far produced 300,000 psychological casualties, 320,000 brain injury casualties, plus 35,000 (probably understated) officially reported “normal” casualties.
This adds up to 655,000 US casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan, an average of just under 101,000 Americans killed or wounded every year since the wars began.

If the idea of 101,000 casualties for every extra year in Iraq and Afghanistan gets out and infects the voting public, imagine the effect on the currently torpid national debate over leaving in five years versus fifteen years!

ONO: You are leaving out the 300,000,000 American casualties who have to foot the bill.

Only when matters start to hit the USA hard into the hip pocket or coffins draped in flags number in the 10's of 1000's as with Vietnam, will many of them wake up.

The USA will be generations paying off the debt to fund the invasion of Iraq, and America, Australia, and Britain, will never wash the blood from our hands.

Geesh talking about having blood on your hands can you just imagine trying to wash the blood of 50 million babies off your hands, I cant. Since 1973 thats how many deaths the left is responsible for so imagine their PSLO "pretend selective liberal outrage" over the deaths of military men and women. Anytime you hear someone on the left pretending to be sad over the deaths of US military men and women ask them how they stand on abortion. If as usual they say they support a womans right to choose "they use those words because they are to cowardly to say they support abortion" just laugh at their PSLO and dismiss them for being hypocrites.
OH and zipperdedoodah speaking of disturbing videos wonder if I could find one on the internet of a partial birth abortion being performed? Which part do you think would be the most disturbing the part where the babies skull is punctured or where the babies brain is sucked out collapsing the skull and killing the baby.....

Mr tommyjohnson44. First of all, a foetus is NOT a baby. Secondly, the term "partial birth abortion" is an emotive term, implying that the foetus is about to be born. The Partial-Birth Abortion procedure is used as early as 20 weeks of pregnancy. Not exactly partial birth, don't you think? And still classed as a foetus. I am not exactly thrilled that a foetus is aborted at such a late stage, bar for medical or mental health reasons, but as you would expect, I will always defend the woman's right to make a personal decision to abort her foetus. Oh and as to disturbing videos Mr tommyjohnson44, of course a video of a "partial birth abortion" would be disturbing, I am not a monster, but I reiterate, I will defend the woman's decision to abort. Can you defend the deaths of thousands and thousands of innocent Iraqi's?
