...the real bugger about dying for your country of course is that you dont get a chance to sell your story to a tabloid...

But, we're not at war with Iran.
So how should soldiers killed in Iraq be compared to the time period people were held in Iran?
Note I think the number of British soldiers killed in Iran during the Iran hostage crisis was zero -- though some were killed in Iraq during that time.

Bringing "Iran" into the calculation at all is the distraction. That somehow, soldiers who died in bush's wargasm during *that* period are somehow of greater propaganda value than the other 3300 who died for bush's greed and stupidity.
