Meanwhile, In Iraq

There are at least seven more GIs that won't get a vote this November:
Four U.S. soldiers were killed in the Iraqi town of Hawija while on patrol, the military said.

Three U.S. soldiers were killed near the Iraqi town of Balad when their vehicle struck another roadside bomb.

The deaths bring to 2,287 the number of U.S. troops who have died in Iraq since the U.S.-led war that toppled
Saddam Hussein in 2003. Roadside bombs are some of the most effective killers of U.S. troops in Iraq.
The ROI in Iraq has never been worth the outlay.

And we keeping on lowering the ROI as if we can't see a way out. Approaching 500 Billion spent on our way to $1 TRILLION!

The cost of this war is truly staggering and the dems need to remind the american people that they are paying the tab- and for what? To make us less safe? To plunge Iraq into civil war or to install a religious zealot as head of Iraq?

Americans are nervous about the economy, as they should be but they have every right to question the incredible cost of this war.

Yeah, they don't even make the headlines anymore. "Seven today? No big deal. Put it in the text."
