Drip, Drip, Drip...

For only the second time since we started protesting 16 months ago, the number of American fatalities in Iraq remained the same from one week to the next. Only the second time. A reason to be thankful, to be sure, but short lived. Since Saturday we have sadly, needlessly, lost four five eleven more brave heroes. (Oh my gosh, I can't believe those numbers - will go back and double check what happened!) Whether a steady stream, or an agonizing drip, drip, drip, the time for sacrificing our own should have long been past. We should never have gone into Iraq, of course, but what the hell are we still doing there?! Which is why you and I didn't mind one bit that we were pummeled by rain on's nothing compared to what our troops are going through. Bring. Them. Home.
Update 9/18/08 6:30pm: Two more casualties today - what in the world is going on?!
