Another sad milestone.

From Huffington Post via Yahoo!News: RJ Eskow: DARK MILESTONE: More Americans Have Now Died In Iraq Than Died On 9/11
While President Bush and other Republican politicians spent the day exploiting the memory of those we lost five years ago, the nation overlooked a grim milestone: More Americans have now died in Iraq than died on 9/11. Iraq didn't attack us on that day, and our misguided policy there has now taken more American lives than Al Qaeda.
I wondered what I'd say on the day this happened. I knew it would come, and I wondered what would be the right thing to say.

All I can say is, why? Why are so many Americans not coming home? Why are so many families without members? Why are so many lives being lost for nothing?

I'd cry, but I can't. I don't want to. It won't help anything.

We need resolve. We need action. We need to get out of there.

Maybe we will.
