Those 300 lives roughly equate to 10% of the number of Allied forces martyred in Iraq, or roughly the same percentage of homosexuals in the population.

Thus, it stands to reason that only gay Marines are killed by inferior rejectionist bullets.

You can't argue with facts, people.

Presumably 300 soldiers' lives are not worth the cost of issuing the armor.

Btw, I've seen reports of 2%, 1% sometimes 3-5% as much as 5-6% maybe, but 10% ?

I wonder how many lives would have been saved if the Iraqis had been able to wear armor.

Rex: Your ideas intrique me. I'd like to subscribe to your newsletter.

This is one of those stories that requires a series. Someone has to find out what the Pentagon knew and when they knew it. It would shine some light on Ol" Man Rummy's "You go to war with the army you have" dodge. Everyone knows now that there was no reason to rush into this war beyond the midterms. Now we have a Pentagon report that lays out some of what that rush to war has cost our military. We need someone to connect the dots. And, of course, there's the question of why the GOP hates our soldiers to consider.

But ol' 'Dubya' there doesn't need body armor to deal with his 'wounds'. I mean - if he can tough it through a confrontation with a cedar tree, well then out troops can suck it up and die on the battlefield, right? The bastard - he could have paid for the body armor out of his own pocket and it wouldn't have even made a dent in his bank account. What a waste!

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
