Just how much indignity and betrayal must our troops endure?

From Salon: The Army is ordering injured troops to go to Iraq

"This is not right," said Master Sgt. Ronald Jenkins, who has been ordered to Iraq even though he has a spine problem that doctors say would be damaged further by heavy Army protective gear. "This whole thing is about taking care of soldiers," he said angrily. "If you are fit to fight you are fit to fight. If you are not fit to fight, then you are not fit to fight."

I wondered where Bush was going to get the soldiers for the "surge." Apparently any way or where he can, regardless of the ethics involved. But why should this be different from the way he does everything else?
