Tragedy in Afghanistan

From Daily Kos:
Ever wonder how it might feel to fight and die in a forgotten war, while your country obsesses over Michael Jackson and Terri Schiavo?
Sixteen people were killed Wednesday when a coalition helicopter traveling in "severe weather" crashed in Afghanistan, the Pentagon said.Eighteen people, including crew and passengers, were listed on the flight manifest. Two people remain unaccounted for. "We collected nine bodies," Sarjang told The AP by mobile telephone. "They were all wearing American uniforms and they were all dead."

184 US soldiers have died in Afghanistan thus far, not that anyone seems to appreciate their sacrifice.
