In the 5 years since invading Iraq, human casualties in all categories are staggering

On Sunday, another American soldier was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq. He or she was number 4,000 in troop deaths in Iraq in the past five years. That's 4,000 young people, folks. And to what end?

Of course Iraqi troop and civilian casualties number into the hundreds of thousands of lives snuffed out in this unnecessary military fiasco. And the numbers of injured and maimed is higher still. For every American troop death, 15 soldiers are injured.

Who dares count the wrecked emotional/mental health of many? And the toll beyond human death or injury?

When will this end?

When will American citizens end it?
