    Are all wars like this?  With politically-connected weasels selling shoddy gear to the grunts.  $3,500 a soldier?  Chump change compared to the costs of medical care and the overall costs of training and equipping the troops.

    It would appear that what most of us see as a tragedy, others see as a golden business opportunity.  Go figure.

      Yes, they are.

      But Iraq has been defined by almost supernatural levels of 'support the troops' propaganda hypocrisy going up against 'screw the troops' profiteering actions.

      The VoteVets ads for this and 0.5% raise story pretty much write themselves.

      "Be kind" - is that a religion?
