A Rant I wish I'd written

Pretty hot in Crawford, pretty hot in Hell

By Mike Whitney

"A Marine assault vehicle on patrol during combat operations hit a roadside bomb Wednesday, and 14 Marines were killed in one of the deadliest single attacks in Iraq against American forces".
-- U.K. Guardian

Fourteen Marines will touch down at Dover Air Force Base tomorrow; their lives cut-short in a brutal war that has yet to produce a rationale.

Where's the outrage?

You can read the rest on The Smirking Chimp.
