9/12 – The Day After
Posted on 12 September 2016
Just ran a few numbers to put things in perspective:
There were around 9000 casualties (dead and wounded) from the attacks on 09/11/2001.
There have been around 60,000 (American) service men and women killed or injured as a result of the “War on Terror”. That does not count any Iraqi, Pakistani, or Afghan civilians. Nor does that count the number of Americans who suffer PTSD or committed suicide as a result of serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Never forget: freedom isn’t free but at what price, America?
