|3400, 3500||Iraq Media|
The carnage continues in Iraq.
While I was gone from the blog, US troops deaths in Iraq passed the 3400 mark. Then 3500. US troops killed in Iraq as of today: 3513.
And hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. For what?
230 US troops were killed in April and May, the worst two-month total of the entire war, a fact worthy of some public discussion, one might think.
The situation is deteriorating. Fox News responds by cutting its Iraq coverage, a policy Bill O'Reilly likes just fine. Yes, let's all shut our eyes, stick our fingers in our ears, and go "La la la la." As if this isn't all happening in a real place, to real people. Unspeakable.
