    promise. When men and women go to war on our behalf, risking injury and death, we, as a country are obliged to make sure they receive the care they need. It's time we focused on our moral obligations to our military.

    I'm glad that Harry Reid is taking the Republicans to task for their hypocrisy concerning our returning military.

    It would seem that this should be a big fat Republican issue.  They are so tied up in defense spending but pretty damn stingy on taking care of the  the people who do the defending.

      And I've been saying for years now that we won't know the full cost of W's misadventures until the last future Tim McVeigh is dealt with or (much more hopefully) passes peacefully (for which I consider good VA care--including (especially) mental health care--and a robust economy to be a necessary precursor).

      And, to my understanding anyway, depleted uranium (DU) ammo (on battlefields and within warriors and bystanders--is there any method by which it can be transmitted to family members?) will be around much longer than that.
