Back here, first commenter "nonny" is outraged -- outraged, I tell you -- about people trying to draw a distinction between long-term, crippling, debilitating exhaustion and being, well, you know, "tired":
What leftists fail to understand is that soldiers are ALWAYS tired when they are in the middle of significant military activities. This just goes to show that ignorance of the military and hatred of the US combine to make you look like an absolute fool.
Right now, you seem to forget, they are battling AQ. They don't get much sleep, so they take naps whenever and wherever they can. It's just wishful thinking on your part to imagine the US military is "crippled." It's sheer stupidity for you to argue that there's some sort of contradiction between Marines and soldiers' being tired and their being successful in their fight against AQ in Iraq.
In what must be totally unrelated news:
Army Suicides Highest in 26 Years
Army soldiers committed suicide last year at the highest rate in 26 years, and more than a quarter did so while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a new military report.
It's unknown what percentage of those suicides were perky and well-rested.
