Who's Paying for Our Patriotism ?

In his article in Wapo, Uwe Reinhardt questions the level of commitment to the Iraq War:

President Bush assures us that the ongoing twin wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are worth the sacrifices they entail. Editorialists around the nation agree and say that a steadfast American public was willing to stay the course.

Should anyone be surprised by this national resolve, given that these wars visit no sacrifice of any sort -- neither blood nor angst nor taxes -- on well over 95 percent of the American people?

Read the whole article- Reinhardt's aim is true.
