According to iCasualties, the total number of allied service members killed in Iraq is 4,732; in Afghanistan, 1,987, of whom 151 are Canadian. Unfortunately, the list of Iraqi civilian casualties has not been updated for two weeks, nor has the daunting task of quantifying Afghan civilian casualties been attempted, however it is clear that those numbers are soaring.

And as an aside to television critic Tom Shales, as a being with empathy and a sense of humanity, I mourn all deaths involved in these wars, as should you. But you know what they say about those who can't be humane: they just smear those who can under the guise of critiquing.
