Meanwhile, we are almost at two thousand GIs who can't vote in the next election because they are dead.

The U.S. death toll in Iraq: 1,992 and counting

Three U.S. Marines and a U.S. Army soldier were killed in Iraq Thursday, bringing the U.S. death toll for the war to 1,992. If U.S. troops continue to die at the pace they have so far this month, the American death toll in Iraq will reach 2,000 before the weekend is over.

And 26,000 Murders in the United States since 2001.
6,500 a year. aprox.
Under Clinton = 52,000+ Murders
Let the Soldiers do thier Jobs overseas.
Could save more lives if we worried about our own backyard!

Iggy dude, would you mind sharing your source on those statistics? I doubt their accuracy. Especially since Clinton put more cops on the streets, while Bush slashed funding for police protection.

Also, what is the soldiers' "jobs overseas?" To act as stormtroopers so that Dick Cheney's Halliburton stock can increase 3000%? To establish a permanant presence in the middle east to seize control of their resources, while fanning the flames of hatred against US occupation, thus perpetuating an open-ended war which contracts out to companies who pay massive profits to the politicians who, in turn, declare more war? Is that the job you mean?

How many Iraqis have died? How many Iraqi civilians?
