Wow!! Now that's amazing. Glad you put this one up, Albert. This might be worth putting up on my website.

Go ahead and have your ironic laugh. There are 6 congressmen who have kids serving in Iraq. The reason your second cemetary is empty is because the Iraq war, which has gone on longer than most wars the US has ever been involved in, has the least amount of casualties of ANY war the US has ever been involved in.

*edit*

Doing some quick math, 6 out of 535 is 1.1%. 150,000 (troops in Iraq) out of 300,000,000 people in the US is .05%. So, per capita, the US Congress has more people in Iraq than the entire US population.

Well that may be true, I'm only taking your word for it.
Are those congressmen's kids serving in combat or have they been appointed officers thereby staying out of harms way. naughty
Further more have they be appointed by GWB to serve in Iraq to make it look good in the publics eye. Sucks

If you'd rather split hairs than acknowledge that US leader's children go to war too, that's fine. Is that your pessimistic view of our country that you assume those kids are made officers to keep them safe (as if officers don't participate in battle as well), and even then it's a conspiracy by GW to "make it look good" whatever "it" is.

So if you're going to include only the frontline troops, that makes the percentage of US population at war even less: .025%

ps. I was wrong. There are seven. Here's the list. Check 'em out if you want:

Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, R-Colo
Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.C
Rep. Ed Schrock, R-Va.,
Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C.,
Rep. John Kline, R-Minn.,
Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.
Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo.

Notice there is only one liberal. Typical. At least four of these kids are not officers, they are enlistedmen in combat units. The Democrat's kid is an intelligence officer, far in the rear. Typical.

Ok then, the way I see it is that there should not be even one of those kids serving in Iraq. I want to see US troops out of Iraq, just like the other 80% of Americans.

Fair enough. I thought you were making a joke about how the leadership doesn't have any kids in Iraq.
