Only a Pawn in Their Game

America's ghost soldiers: photos of Iraqi invasion American military dead -- up to 13 February, 2005.
Thanks, Gavin!
Look at the some of the photos, and the dry statistics melt away. Behold they whom were all once flesh and blood.
Behold. Once. Once upon a time.
The Donald Rumsdfeldian 'metrics' for American military dead crossed the 1,700 threshold, last week. Be sure that someone, somewhere, is counting the many more thousands of American military who have been maimed for life.
As far as I know, there is no comparable website with photos of the (who-knows-how-many?) Iraqi military dead. Nor for the double-digit (who-knows-how-many?) thousands of Iraqi civilian fatalities. Nor for the Iraqi maimed nor the orphaned. So it goes.
