Bush's War Hits Yet Another Tragic and Grim - And Infinitely Unnecessary - Milestone

From Reuters, the long-expected word that the number of deaths of U.S. soldiers in Iraq (and those are just the ones the Pentagon admits to) has climbed past the most widely accepted number who died in attacks on the U.S. on September 11th, 2001 (9-11):

The U.S. military reported the deaths of six more American soldiers, bringing the U.S. toll to at least 2,978 -- five more than the number killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks.

At least 89 U.S. soldiers have died this month, making it the deadliest this year after October's toll of 106, and increasing pressure on President George W. Bush to find a strategy to extricate 135,000 U.S. troops from the war.

Bush is trying to find a way to send up to 50,000 more in!
