U.S. Military Death Toll Reaches 2,000 In Iraq

The U.S. crossed a milestone few would have imagined when President Bush's spinmeisters declared "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq.

The number of U.S. military deaths in Iraq reached 2,000 today.

For a better idea of how many U.S. casualties there have been, check out this short movie. Needless to say, it's highly critical of the Bush Administration -- as we all should be when it comes to this war. The reasons behind the Iraq war amount to the second-greatest intelligence failure in U.S. history -- surpassed only by our inability to stop the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Each U.S. death is a reminder of that failure by our so-called "leaders," who tried to convince the world of some tangential relationship between Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden -- a relationship that never existed.

The question is, when Bush's war kills more Americans than BinLaden did, does that mean we've won?

Was that ever doubted, Bobby?

Your hatred (based, I'm guessing, on ignorance) is incredible.

Polls show 61 percent of Americans disapprove of the way Bush is handling the Iraq war and some 53 percent believe it was a mistake.
A British military poll taken in August shows that 45 percent of Iraqis believe attacks on coalition British and U.S. military forces are justified, 82 percent of the people are "strongly opposed" to the occupation, while less than one percent feels the security situation has improved under the coalition See: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2005/10/23/wirq23.xml&sSheet=/portal/2005/10/23/ixportaltop.html
Americans oppose this war Iraqis oppose this war, yet we fight on while more people on both sides die.
Bush just keeps on doing the same thing and expecting a different result -- the definition of insanity -- and dragging our country down with him.

Bobby, the question is, what goal do the "milestones" passed today, tomorrow and the next day, lead us to? If pinkos are the ones asking that question, then I'd like to hear Bush answer it. The real tragedy, as we pinkos understand, isn't the noble sacrifice, it's the contemptible lies, the incompetence and the pervasive hubris that lead us to it.

No relationship between Saddam and 9/11 or no relationship between Saddam and Al-Quaeda?

The worst thing about the mess with no end in Iraq is that it has taken resources and attention away from THE REAL REASON we should be fighting. Every day/month/year that Osama Bin Laden is free while Bush helps his cause by providing a target for his nihilistic followers, is another insult to those of us who witnessed and remember the mass-murders on 9/11.

Anonymous, you may be happy to split the academic distinctions but the bloggers here are not playing the Republican game. We don't engage in the diversions, conflation and revisions that is the only thing the Right has to offer anymore. It's extremely simple: Bin Laden is free, and instead of serving justice to that m-er f-er we're sending our children to die in a bloody quagmire somewhere else. Inexcusable.
