I'm glad we're taking that fight to L Kayda no matter how many American lives it costs. Aren't you? Aren't you glad that Saddam bin Laden has been dispatched and hung? Isn't it great that we are sacrificing our own in order to nation build which we really weren't planning to do?

Go us!

I guess the thinking is better 4000 willing soldiers spread out over 5 years than 4000 civilians in 2 hours.

Nation building is misdirection. It is not the prime objective.

It's further down the list of priority so it will be allowed to generally flounder with each incremental advance loudly hailed.

Right. Because after Iraq sent their terrorists to America with dirty bombs and box cutters and hijacked our planes flying them into some of our iconoclastic edifii, it was time to get even. :9:

What are you talking about?

He's talking about Iraq, not 9/11.

There's no connection, remember?

I just don't understand why we're about to elect Saddam's nephew Barak to be our president? His cousin Osama is still a declared enemy.

The real number is closer to 5,100.

The other 1,100 or so is military contractor personnel. Just because this administration chooses to fight this war with contractors doesn't mean that they don't count when they die in theater doing jobs for the military.

World Tribune Death toll for U.S. contractors in Iraq passes 1,000

They shouldn't be able to avoid the political and social consequences of draft by using contractors and then not include them in the death toll, IMO. They are Americans killed in the prosecution of this war.

Whoa, stop the witch hunt. I know there's no connection. I just think that's the admin rationalization from back in '03 and what was spoon fed to the masses.
