31 American soldiers die in helicopter shoot-down, so it must be time for another war, naturally (revised)

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- A military helicopter crashed in eastern Afghanistan, killing 31 U.S. special operation troops and seven Afghan commandos, the country's president said Saturday. An American official said it was apparently shot down, in the deadliest single incident for American forces in the decade-long war.

Let me guess: Iran did it.

BTW, note that this record-setting incident occurred ONE DAY after the first-ever American debt-rating downgrade.
