As the U.S. extends its military presence in Afghanistan for another ten years, increases military forces in Iraq as "advisers and trainers," and expands airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, we can anticipate more casualties on an indefinite basis in an expanded war zone. Remarkably, all this is happeni ...
