  1. They are estimating (why doesn’t anybody know for sure or won’t say?) around 2 million soldiers have gone through deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, many of them two or three or more deployments. Hundreds of thousands of them are coming back with grievous, horrible wounds, physical and mental.

    (See this book: http://www.amazon.com/Broken-Bodies-Shattered-Minds-Afghanistan/dp/1933909471/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1314595414&sr=8-1 and this HBO documentary http://www.amazon.com/Wartorn-1861-2010-Jon-Alpert/dp/B004MQ6VRE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1314595491&sr=8-1 )

    This event will be repeated hundreds of times as these soldiers come home finally too broken and wounded to go back again. Of all the war crimes our leaders have committed, what they are doing to our own people is right up at the top, using them as fighting machines with no regard for their human limitations.
