How much is your life worth…

“A chilling report from the Boston Globe on Thursday reveals that the amount of cash the U.S. military has paid to families of Iraqi civilians killed or badly injured (during) operations involving American troops ‘skyrocketed from just under $5 million in 2004 to almost $20 million last year, according to Pentagon financial data.’ The payments can range from several hundred dollars for a severed limb to a standard of $2500 for loss of life.”
