What is killing our soldiers today in large numbers? Suicides. Having to be sent back to Iraq time and again, with wives and children struggling to survive at home, not enough money, wives feeling abandoned, soldiers feeling that they will be sent back until they are killedthis insanity must stop.

The only ones who may be able to stop it is our politicians who fear losing at the polls rather than expressing the courage to see that it is stopped. Where are the patriots of old?
