    In the next couple days, a 2000th US soldier will die in Iraq. (1992 dead as of this morning.) Does anyone think this (realistically arbitrary) milestone will further reduce US public commitment to the war?

    I'm sure it'll increase the public dissatisfaction. (Not that that's ever mattered to the Bushies.)

    This hitting the news will be a nice way for Bush to help out his 39% approval rating. :rolleyes: :mad:

    What has this cost of life (on both sides) actually achieved?

    Iraq is in utter chaos & the threat of terrorism has increased.

    Edit: just thought of something - many US companies have made millions of $'s.

    True, but the economy has also been weak during the war, so each of those dollars is worth less.

    And still, the number of military funerals attended by George W. Bush: 0.

    Don't forget the Iraqi's oil reserves. Mind you, it's for their own good so that's OK!

    No-tender contracts, anyone?
