2,000 dead

Today, the official death toll for US troops in Iraq reached 2,000. But that's only the soldiers killed in action. It doesn't include those who died later of wounds received, or of suicides, or of non-combat-related accidents, or illnesses. It doesn't count contractors or mercenaries, nor does it include Iraqis.

According to Iraq Body Count, between 26,690 and 30,051 Iraqi civilians have been reported killed.

According to Iraq Coalition Casualty Count, 3,450 Iraqi police and military have been reported killed, and at least 272 contractors. 493 Coalition people have died from non-combat related causes.

For lies. And liars in high office.

This is why one should never vote for a politician who lies.

"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."
