The recent rash of violence in Iraq hasn’t been covered much in the news, but I feel it’s important to mention since many Americans still have friends and family fighting in this illegal and immoral war and the NNM is doing it’s best to distract us in every way possible. Think about all the stupid things the NNM covers, while ignoring the important world events happening on a daily basis. Who cares about Brittany Spears when their child is dying from a lack of health care? Is the baseball steroid scandal all that important to those still rebuilding their lives from Hurricane Katrina? When downtown Philadelphia is beginning to look and feel more like downtown Bogota, does it really matter that Obama gave a lightly poignant speech about race? If our freedoms are eroding away and no one seems to notice, what exactly are our soldiers fighting for?
4,000 US soldiers dead in Iraq (not including those who died of wounds after being airlifted to Kuwait, or those soldiers who have committed suicide at home because of PTSD), 29,451 US soldiers wounded in Iraq
