Fallujah


About a week or so ago, I mentioned that I knew of a guy who was going to be a part of the assault on Fallujah. His commanders had told his company that they should all pray a lot and that they would all be heroes. I just found out last night that he was severely injured earlier this week and was sent to Germany for medical treatment. From what I understand, he'll be ok, but he might lose a limb. Unfortunately, as Atrios points out, there are literally hundreds of people this week alone just like this guy that we don't hear enough about. Why not?Here's an article that asks this very question--and the answer he comes up with shouldn't really sit well with anybody.
