The War On Weariness

People at home may be sick to the back teeth of the war without end in Iraq, but a new health issue has become clear for those serving in this conflict.

Record numbers of troops in the field are suffering with overtiredness, leading to serious long-term health problems.

The US army appears to care very little, with shorter leave for those returning home between tours of duty.

Tell The Truthiness ; As each weary day for these troops passes, without an end in sight, the reasons for going to war become less and less clear. The fuzziness they are no doubt suffering has spread to not just the administration, which is considering a return to the draft to maintain troop levels, but to the media. Because overtired soldiers isn't as hot a story as them getting blown up.
