Gee, some milestone

Guess, what, kids? As of today, 3,963 Americans have been killed in Iraq.

Some out-of-touch wingnut think-tanker or neocon yahoo will claim that there's something good about "only" 4,000 or so dead Americans. Said yahoo will repeat the dumb excuse that "we're fighting them over there [in a country, that had nothing to do with 9/11] so we don't need to fight them over here." It's really easy to think that way when your house is still intact, your loved ones are still alive, and you don't have foreign troops in your country for a purpose even they can't figure out. It's even easier when you don't take into account the dead Iraqis.

"Only" 4,000 Americans. I can't wait to see how the Kristolhammer contingent spins this one.
