Just a slight clarification to what I wrote below. I wrote "we seem to value Iraqi civilian casualties higher than we value casualties among our own troops." Of course, what I meant was we seem to value Iraqi civilian lives more than we values the lives of our own troops. The irony with such an attitude is that critics never quite believe it no matter how many of our soldiers are lost compared to the number dead and injured Iraqi civilians. The Israeli experience here is instructive.
