the AP is reporting that “The U.S. military is giving the Ohio National Guard its biggest call-up since World War II this week.” Ohio will be sending another 1,600 troops to Kuwait and Iraq to fight George Bush’s highly unpopular war.

Let’s just hope Ohio doesn’t face any serious state emergencies this year that would require the help of the national guard- because they won’t be here, where they belong, to help.

In a related story- CNN is reporting that 2007 was the deadliest year in Iraq for US troops- with 899 deaths.
