War of the Wounded

Back on December 9, Kevin Drum posted on an article in the New England Journal of Medicine about the changing proportion of injuries to deaths in war. More soldiers are being injured now than in the Vietnam War, but fewer are dying. The corollary to this, according to an article published in today's Washington Post, is that the high injury to death ratio is creating serious problems for soldiers after they return home.

Hmmm, seems to be awfully judgmental from a person who can't possibly know and should never have to experience such a horrific crime. Bobbi jo's husband was right when he said his daughter was a miracle... could you imagine what it would be like to know that your daughter was in the hands of the person who mutilated you wife.

Could you imagine the SHOCK this young new father/widower is in right now... I bet you can't!!! I think you are rude and very disrespectful to cast judgment on how a grief stricken and shock stricken family are handling this truly horrific nightmare!
