He might be rethinking the war....... if he could:
The military announced the death of one GI in Iraq. And the LAT has a front-page piece on an American colonel in Iraq who recently promised his battalion that the high casualty rate they've suffered—about 100 wounded in a 700-soldier strong unit—would soon drop. The colonel was killed 48 hours later by a roadside bomb as he came to the aid of a wounded GI. The colonel was one of the highest-ranking officers to die in the war so far.
