I am not, but many Americans are mourning the death of retired Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf. He was a “true American patriot and one of the great military leaders of his generation,” said George H. W. Bush. But what about all the Iraqis that were killed by the U.S. military when the United States attacked Iraq the first time? No one mourns them. There were also 293 American military personnel killed in the First Gulf War. Who remembers them? And as Pat Buchanan once asked: “Why should a single American die for the Emir of Kuwait?”
