Four thousand of our young soldiers, and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians, were dead. Perhaps two or three times those numbers included the permanent disabilities or slow death caused by our depleted uranium weapons, lack of sustainable drinking water and electricity (for the Iraqis… our guys at least got the very best in accommodations) … you get my drift.
