Sending The Injured Back Into Battle

Salon via Nicole Belle at Crooks and Liars:
As the military scrambles to pour more soldiers into Iraq, a unit of the Army's 3rd Infantry Division at Fort Benning, Ga., is deploying troops with serious injuries and other medical problems, including GIs who doctors have said are medically unfit for battle. Some are too injured to wear their body armor, according to medical records...

Lessee - Walter Reed scandal, the stain on the United States from torture and abuse, crass and criminal resource theft, the murder of innocents, the burgeoning and destructive costs of Empire, other things I am too weary to mention, and now this disgusting development.

How many of these huge issues would be mitigated if we Get. Out. Now.
