Facing the Face of War

While skimming Altercation, I came across a post from Douglas O'Heir, in which he wrote a moving description of a report in the latest New England Journal of Medicine on U.S. soldiers wounded in Iraq.

If you, like me, would like to know more, you can read the piece here, and see the photo essay here. As he said, it's not for the squeamish, but it brings home the cost of our government's high talk all too clearly. And as long as your money is going to make it possible, you, and I, need to face what we are doing and own it.
