Mr, Klein gets it wrong ...

... right here. At least where it pertains to the cost of freedom. I agree with his assessment that we're putting too much of a burden on our soldiers, and this is at least a factor -- if not the most important one -- in the increased suicides of those in our military. Where he runs off the rails though, IMO, is with this comment:
... there is no way that a democratic Iraq can be worth the losses that we, and the Iraqi people, have already sustained.
Really? If the citizens of the United States suddenly were stripped of all their freedoms, Mr. Klein would argue that the cost would probably be too high to regain those freedoms? Or does it only apply to Iraqis?
