It Should Be Over. It's Done. No More. Get Out.
This week marked the 2,000th American death in a 12-year war that has barely been mentioned by either candidate in this election season. In honor of that obscene milestone - never mind the 100,000-plus dead civilians - the New York Times ran The Roster of the Dead, a four-page spread showing the face, age and hometown of every dead American servicemember. Stop and look at it. And remember: when people get blown up, not everyone dies.
