Caring for a badly hurt boy.


Miami native Maj. Joseph Johnson, the brigade surgeon with the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, stabilizes an Iraqi boy who came in with second-degree burns to his face, shoulders and chest from an accident involving hot water as his mother watches by his bedside at the Muleskinner Clinic at Camp Taji, Iraq, May 9. The mother asked for help from Soldiers with the 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, who were conducting operations in her neighborhood.  (U.S. Army photo)

The American soldier.
Finest in the world.

The funny thing is that if that poor kid got burned here in the U.S. his family would probably face some pretty serious medical bills for this top quality care. I’m glad to see that we can afford top quality health care for Iraqis but I’m worried about the prospect of intrducing soialized medicine to the capitalist Democracy our Iraqi allies are building.

I admire your 24/7 devotion to irrelevant snark, Paul. I guess it helps you pass the time, but it really adds nothing useful or enduring to the debate.

And since this is a post dedicated to honoring Memorial Day and those who have/are serving, you’re underscoring the fact that you have no class. That is really low, even for you.
