The death toll for US soliders, airmen, sailors and marines in Iraq has hit the 2,000 mark.
The Pentagon is asking the media not to report it as a milestone.
Remember: don’t show the coffins, don’t report the casualty rates. It’s the only way to keep what little support there is for this war….which the administration lied to us to get into.

“Shaft” by Geoffrey Chaucer
Wha be tha blake prevy lawe
That bene wantoun too alle tha feres?
Ya damne righte!
Wha be tha carl tha riske is hals wolt
Fro is allye leve?
Wha be tha carl wha ne wolden flee
Whan peril bene all aboughte?
Alle clepe tha carl ane badde mooder-
Speken of Shaft bene I.
THAN KONNE ALLES WE!
He be a man konne unnethes
Namo save is mayde konnes im.
