A benchmark of sorts has been reached in the War in Iraq: 2000 American military deaths.

For this brief post, I have nothing to say about U.S. foreign policy that I have not already said, umpteen times in the past.

For this brief post, I only offer my deepest condolences to the families of those who have lost their loved ones.

For this brief post, I offer too a special salute to the living who are grappling with the tragedy of warfare on a daily basis: the 15,000+ visibly wounded and the thousands upon thousands of soldiers still suffering from scars invisible to the naked eye.

For this brief post, no comments are necessary.
