The Cost of War

As long as I'm directing my faithful readers to other blogger's websites for wisdom, I'd like to direct you all to read Vigilante's great entry from this morning, Almost Too Much to Grasp.

It's only fair after directing you to conservative
Michelle Malkin that I next direct you to progressive Vigilante's excellent blog, The Vigil.

Vigilante introduces us to Michael White's
Iraq Coalition Casualty Count, a site I'm embarrassed to admit I had never seen. White is considered my many to be the pre-eminent statistician on the real human costs of what Vigilante's has so aptly named the un-provoked, unnecessary, largely unilateral invasion and unplanned occupation of Iraq (UULUIUOI).

White keeps astonishingly accurate records of the soldiers who have died, and those seriously wounded in both Iraq and Afghanistan. His blog is completely non-political, but the facts and figures he chronicles speak louder than any pundit or politician.

I think it's really important that each and every one of us keep a daily eye on Michaels blog. As the politicians debate the Iraq adventure on Capitol Hill this spring, we need to make certain we don't get lost in the rhetoric. Michael's site will always keep you grounded.

Vigilante's own writing on this matter is excellent and the many replies and comments to his article are worth reading, too.
