Costs Climb in Iraq

By Remy Benoit

   The costs of maintaining  an American presence in  Iraq continue to grow.

   The troops will remain for the "foreseeable  future."

    Join the New York Times and THOM SHANKER  at:Rumsfeld Doubles Estimate for Cost of Troops in Iraq.
    Yes, the costs of war are financially high but they are higher in other ways. Those include the memories, the flashbacks; they include those who come home injured, who don't come home, and who simply disappear.

   From the Los Angeles Times and Al Martinez: Memories of lost men haunt a rainy day.

And there is the day to day living with the aftermath of war. >br>
From Medea Benjamin and The International Occupation Watch Center: Baghdad Journal: The Clock Is Ticking.
