Another fallen hero...

Members of the US Army Old Guard Caisson Platoon transport the remains of a US military veteran before a funeral service at Arlington Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.
14 US soldiers have died in scattered attacks in Iraq over the last two days.
In the meantime, the leading Democratic candidates (Clinton, Obama, Edwards) continue to advocate leaving a "residual force" in Iraq indefinitely. They talk of leaving 20,000 to 30,000 troops. Who is going to provide protection for these troops? How are we going to be able to keep the supply lines open? I think that at that point we'll be told to get out.
