Casualties

In an op-ed piece in Sunday's NYT, Frank Rich points out that "it's [...] revealing that the only 'casualty of a war' Mr. Ajami's conscience prompts him to mention [in a typically-overheated WSJ op-ed article] is Mr. Libby, a figurative casualty rather than a literal one".

It's even more revealing that in Rich's op-ed piece the only casualties of war mentioned besides Scooter Libby are US soldiers. Not a word on the Iraqis, by far the major casualties of the war so far. Even for Rich (whose op-ed bits I typically enjoy), the war's so often All About US.
