    Did we expect them to die any other way?

    And everyone of those people had family or friends who would be happy to avenge those deaths. Iraq is a no win.

    Especially for the Iraqis. Halliburton, on the other hand, must be quite happy.

Parts,equipment,new rockets,bombs,ammo,tanks,etc etc. They make billions and we the taxpayer get the bill.

    that's the first i've seen an estimate higher than that determined by iraqbodycount, which is near 40k. they use a different method of determination: local media reports.

    Also a direct hit by a weapon can sometimes leave nothing, I suspect the number is slightly higher.

    It's far higher than that. I doubt it's gone down since I last checked over a year ago. They must have changed the way they tabulate the deaths. And what constitutes a "war" death.

    Those are the games they have been playing on many issues only the public is to stupid to look closer.
    So Iraq is asking us to go, top generals are saying the same yet the draft dodgers running the show in Washington want to stay the course calling everyone else opposed to this imperial rule as cutting & running. Only problem is the rudder has been broken for years. Congress & president are clueless. So many dead and in the end we will have established is a Shiite Iraqi theocracy. watch it happen. This war did nothing for the U.S. but it allowed Bin Laden and his pals to get away. Oh, it drove the Oil markets crazy with record profits.

    Hey, does anyone think that if 570,000 Americans were killed violently in three years, (and a Democratic president was in power) that the GOP footsoldiers would be out asking why the news stories aren't showing all the good news that's happening in the States?
