Dark Milestone

President Bush and other Republican politicians spent the day exploiting the memory of those we lost five years ago, the nation overlooked a grim milestone: More Americans have now died in Iraq than died on 9/11. Iraq didn't attack us on that day, and our misguided policy there has now taken more American lives than Al Qaeda.

Here are the numbers: 3,015 Americans have died in Iraq as of September 9. 2,666 of these were military deaths and 349 were civilians.

I've nothing to add at this time.


  1. What an absolutely colossal waste.

    There's no Hell awful for Bush to while away eternity.

  2. And the war in Iraq has now gone on longer than WWII.
