    That has never been the case in modern warfare, and a good thing.

    That the lives of the men has been the number one priority. It has also never been the number one priority of our government.

    Um, some 3000 have died in Iraq.....
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    If we weren't out there twisting a few arms, it could easily be 30,000.

    #1. We have killed over 20,000 Jihadists in Iraq.

    #2. Notice we didn't have to kill them on US. soil.

    #3. Back to the topic after your attempt to derail.... there haven't been any attacks for over 7 years.

    #4. Thank you troops, and CIA.!!!!( not to mention Bush and Cheney )

    The military, by it's very nature, is risky. Not going to war, because someone might get hurt the the most disfunctional way to run a military there is.

    However, American citizens aren't signed up to die so you can uphold your morale standards.

    Soldiers are American citizens.

    Every action we take has risk for civilians. To be safe, we would have to close our borders, and expand our military to totally guard and control those borders. This is obviously a bad idea, but with our borders not being closed, we greatly increase the chance of Americans being killed. Every action we take overseas is likely to have some element of risk for civilians at home. That does not mean we should not take those actions overseas.

    Hundreds of thousands of Americans have died to uphold and defend the American system and American ideals. To scrap our system of laws because it might mean a little added risk to us would be, to my mind, akin to pissing on the sacrifices made by those who died defending our system of laws.
