Riverbend confronts us all with the staggering human costs of war.

I'll not cheapen it here with the obvious debate over how much responsibility Saddam himself bears for the deaths of those people in the shelter.

A thousand hours of argument would not resurrect the dead, nor comfort the mother of eight of the dead who haunts their tomb to this day.

I would suggest to Riverbend that if Iraqis didn't matter to me I wouldn't have bothered coming out here in the first place.

And I'd further ask this of Americans: why is it that this intelligent and perceptive young woman ever got the impression that their deaths--or the Law of Land Warfare, depending on how you read her--wouldn't matter to us?
