quote of the day: 1900

AP News:

"The war in Iraq passed a sobering milepost Tuesday when U.S. officials reported 10 more Americans were killed — six of them members of the armed forces, raising to more than 1,900 the number of U.S. service members who have died in the country since the invasion."

As someone who's husband spent a year over there and who has a friend over there now, this is very upsetting. Especially when you consider that no effort is being made to change the strategy in Iraq.

Also, for those of us old enough to remember Vietnam this from WaPo is also troubling:

Don't forget us over here in Iraq--behind all the protests and the anti-war/pro-war debates, please don't forget that there are 140,000 of us who live in a war zone-I for one don't want to become just another policital talking point between two parties--that as soldiers, we may not have a loud political voice but we have a very big personal stake for the success or failure of Iraq--whether we are "for" the war or "against" the war, all of us are AT war.
