2. This administration will say it's "just another arbitrary number"
That's what they said when the KIA crossed the 2,000 threshold.

They'll keep blowing it off regardless of how high it gets.

"100,000 killed in Iraq? We can't stop now or those lives will be lost in vain."

4. fair enough
but I said "...approach 3,000....". In any event, the point I was trying to make was that someone has made a video that nails the veterans issue on the head...the dirty little secret is that funding for veterans benefits and programs is a joke...and both republican and Democratic lawmakers are to blame.

5. Fair enough indeed...
It's a shame what they have done to the Veteran's Administration and Education in order to fund the occupation in Iraq/Afghaistan.
