Death toll for U.S. troops in Iraq reaches 2,000
This has all sorts of negative correlations with technology issues, but as a U.S. Army veteran and concerned American, I just had to mention this horrible bit of news.
An AP newswire article, via MSNBC, reports that:
The U.S. military announced the death of an American soldier wounded in Iraq on Tuesday, bringing to 2,000 the number of American service members killed since the war started in 2003, according to an Associated Press count.You will not be forgotten.
Earlier, the military announced the deaths of two Marines in fighting with insurgents last week in a village west of Baghdad.
Just before the toll hit 2,000, President Bush warned the nation to brace for an even higher casualty count as the mission there has more work remaining to be successful.
