Just thought it might be worth noting that at this time the number of American soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq is already greater than the number of Americans killed by the September 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. So if the (clears throat) ‘point’ of the ‘War on Terrorism’ has been to ensure that such a loss is never again endured by America, well… Guess what?

All this talk about first we are going to do Afghanistan, then we will do Iraq . . . this is entirely the wrong way to go about it.
