Just askin'

Yesterday, U.S. military bases across the world observed moments of silence for those killed yesterday at Fort Hood. Today, flags there and at government buildings are at half staff. All perfectly appropriate, I'm sure. But there are American soldiers killed virtually every day in Iraq and Afghanistan? How come their deaths don't get the same treatment?

And while I'm asking questions, why is it that those who don't want the government to pay for abortions get their way, but objecting to other things the government spends its money on, like war and occupation (and subsidizing the purchase of SUVs, just to name one more), gets you nowhere?
