Never Coming Home

Now that the media is so dominated by the crisis in Burma and the Iranian President's visit to New York, that other major topic, the Iraq War, has slipped under the radar somewhat the last days. The carnage continues with 48 killed just today.

A timely and sobering reminder of Iraq, and all that that involves, comes via AlterNet:

"Andrew Lichtenstein's new book, Never Coming Home, shows the faces behind the daily casualty statistics in the Iraq war. Each week, these men and women killed in Iraq are buried and mourned, privately and publicly, in deeply personal scenes of love, loss and remembrance."

The tragedy of what has been wrought by the Coalition of the Willing comes home with a resounding wallop!
