    • That list is just IRAQ!

      Iraq the only place where there was no threat. Do you have a list of all Soldiers who died including afghanistan? and suicides afetr comming home?

      There are also over 1 million America Soldiers living with the "after affects" of these wars inculing PTSD, Chemical exposure, ect. not to mention the families of thousands of Soldiers who are now dead.

      Seems the list is far greater when you look at the bigger picture.
