Is this how the GOP "supports the troops"?

From the NY Times (via AMERICAblog):
A secret Pentagon study has found that at least 80 percent of the marines who have been killed in Iraq from wounds to their upper body could have survived if they had extra body armor. That armor has been available since 2003 but until recently the Pentagon has largely declined to supply it to troops despite calls from the field for additional protection, according to military officials.
Even if the 80% figure is high, there's no doubt that a significant number of deaths could have been prevented. But no matter - it's Michael Moore and liberal bloggers who are really endangering US soldiers.
