BAGHDAD — Two soldiers were killed in combat operations and another died in a non-combat incident, the military said Sunday.

So is this (Salon article):

"This is not right," said Master Sgt. Ronald Jenkins, who has been ordered to Iraq even though he has a spine problem that doctors say would be damaged further by heavy Army protective gear. "This whole thing is about taking care of soldiers," he said angrily. "If you are fit to fight you are fit to fight. If you are not fit to fight, then you are not fit to fight."

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.

Oh, and AIPEC (where Cheney grunted/spoke)--WE'LL worry about the war. Why don't YOU worry about Israeli diplomats, who are rapidly becoming as embarrassing as Tory Members of Parliament.
