Hey, Lou Dobbs, Suck. On. This.

While Lou Dobbs and a whole host of Neanderthals bash immigrants, even in foolish wars that should never have been fought, those immigrants pay a greater costs than they ever have.

A young, ambitious immigrant from Guatemala who dreamed of becoming an architect. A Nigerian medic. A soldier from China who boasted he would one day become an American general. An Indian native whose headstone displays the first Khanda, emblem of the Sikh faith, to appear in Arlington National Cemetery.

These were among more than 100 foreign-born members of the U.S. military who earned American citizenship by dying in Iraq.

All for the vanity of old men.
