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.

Wow. Thanks for posting that link. It’s very powerful stuff.
Of course it’s not a milestone.
The 2000 milestone was long passed in Iraqi casualties, but I’m sure they all feel better, since they’re all “free” now.
And, for that matter, that particular milestone only shows up if you only count the soldiers who actually died on the ground in Iraq. The ones who die in the air on their way to Germany, or the ones who die in German hospitals from wounds sustained in Iraq, oddly enough, don’t make the cut. Add them into the mix and we hit 2000 a long long time ago.
And of course they don’t really come out with up-to-date civilian casualties. Hmm. . .
I hate this administration so much. So so much.
