Telephone calls home from Iraq and Afghanistan

I was chatting to the son of one of my working colleagues who just happens to be in the Airforce and has done his stint in Iraq.
It turns out that our soldiers on the firing line of someone else's war get less time on the phone to their families than prisoners in jail at home.
He was of course outraged, given that our men of the armed forces were risking their lives out in the hell hole we call Iraq. He is outraged ? am I. This nanny state of ours cannot get their priorities right no matter how hard they try. It's quite disgusting, it really is.
