By the time...

... you read the headline of this post, more than 3,100 American soldiers will have given their lives for this immoral, illegal and unnecessary war. (3,097 as of February 2nd, 2007)

As of January 10th, 2007, more than 47,657 American soldiers have been injured in the American war on the people of Iraq, 6,670 requiring immediate medical air transport (indicating grievous injury).

The projected costs of caring for these injured veterans is estimated to be in excess of $660 billion.

If every war supporter, every surge supporter, logged on to Iraq Coalition Casualty Count every day and read the names of the dead, American soldiers would not be in Iraq.

Honor our commitments.
Act with honor.
Acknowledge the sacrifice others are making.

...try not to cry.
