There is No Such Thing as a Free Lunch, kids

Cicero (46 B.C.) must have met Cindy Sheehan before he said, "To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child."

To all the body bag counting, anti-war lefties, I say, "Get a little historical perspective." Operation Iraqi Freedom has been a very successful military campaign. This has not been a strictly air war, much like the first Gulf War, and the presence of troops on the ground means inevitable casualties. All things considered, the amount of American life lost is extremely low when compared to other land/air wars from our country's past.

Not that it should serve as any surprise that the war protesters are not versed in history. (See Jay Bennish, et al.)
