The U.S. military reached another milestone

As of today, the American deaths in Iraq exceeds the American deaths on 9/11. According to the AP, "The U.S. military death toll in Iraq has reached 2,974, one more than the number of deaths in the Sep. 11, 2001, attacks in the United States". And the American death count in Iraq keeps growing and growing.

However, the American deaths in Iraq is minuscule as compared to the Iraqi death count there. Now, there is a difference of opinion about the number of Iraqi soldiers and civilians killed in Iraq. But according to former General Tommy Franks, "We don't do body counts." The lowest count is from George W. Bush--30,000. The highest count is from Johns Hopkins University--655,000. Pretty wide count margin, indeed! But, let's take the conservative count: the Iraqi deaths are 10 times more than the American deaths.

And to think; the Iraqis never attack the United States, or even threaten to do so. That means the U.S. is the aggressor, and Iraq is the defender: there is no way getting around it. And the war keeps going, and going, and going. I said this before, but it bears repeating: I love my country, but I don't trust its government. And listen Nancy Pelosi, Bush is nothing more than a war criminal, and at least he can do is get impeached.
