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.
