Andrew J. Bacevich, a Boston University professor and a vocal critic of the Iraq war, had his worst nightmare come true Sunday when his son, 1st Lt. Andrew J. Bacevich, 27, of Walpole, Mass., died Sunday in Balad after an explosive detonated near his unit in Salahuddin province  

In a March 1 op-ed for the Boston Globe,Bacevich Sr. wrote that "our reckless flirtation with preventive war qualifies as not only wrong, but also stupid. Indeed, the Bush Doctrine poses a greater danger to the United States than do the perils it supposedly guards against." 

How many more will die?
