Highest Death Toll in Baghdad Since Start of War

"Progress":

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Thirteen U.S. soldiers have been killed in Baghdad since Monday, the American military reported, registering the highest three-day death toll for U.S. forces in the capital since the start of the war.

The latest losses -- four soldiers who were killed at 9 a.m. Wednesday by small-arms fire -- are part of a recent spike in violent attacks against U.S. forces that have claimed the lives of at least 24 soldiers and Marines in Iraq since Saturday, the military said.

The number of planted bombs is "at an all-time high," said Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell, a military spokesman, defying American efforts to stanch the vicious sectarian bloodshed in Baghdad that threatens to plunge the country into civil war.

"This has been a hard week for U.S. forces," Caldwell said. "Unfortunately, as expected, attacks have steadily increased in Baghdad during these past weeks." Independent databases showed the three-day toll for American troops to be the highest in Baghdad so far.

More good news for the wackos hey Tparty.
 
Only a republican shill would find this to be good news, energybanalist. At least you are consistent with your Hannity/Drudge/Limbaugh dittohead drivel.

TParty -- I would hope that you post a daily reminder of how many lives have been lost, how many families have been devastated. Having endured the "body count" during the Vietnam war and having lost several young friends in that tragedy, I think we need a constant reminder of the unbearable cost of this ill-conceived war. Thank you.
 
ALL wars are ill-conceived. While he keeps count be sure to include those that died in the WTC and other terrorist events that will surely go on after we walk away from this conflict (just as millions of our allies died after we prematurely left Viet Nam). How many lives would we have spared if we had just given the Japanese and the Germans what they wanted instead of fighting the second world war.
 
Wow! Let's see, there's so much here to digest. Still pushing the much discredited Iraq war-9/11 connection. The Iraq war being the distraction from actually finishing the job in Afghanistan. Vietnam -- another screwed up ill conceived conflict, badly managed (sound familiar?) And where did you get "millions of our allies" dying after we left Vietnam? Please supply the link. And WWII? What does that have to do with current events? The Japanese actually killed over 2,000 people in American territory -- hence, the war against them; the Germans were slaughtering our allies and lend/lease wasn't working. How many lives were saved by entering those wars? A few million more Jews, gypsies, handicapped, dissidents, Eurpeans and Russians just to tick off a few.

Back to Faux News with you, energybanalyst. Gets some more points.
 
here's your link http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/COM.TAB1.GIF

and there are many others if you bother to look. If it werent true, there wouldnt have been the massive boat people issue.

You think for yourself yet see no link between Iraq and 9/11. Ever wonder how these guys got trained? Ever wonder why some were seen meeting with Iraqi intelligence, ever wonder what the Iraqis used Salman pak for? Ever wonder what sh (another AH) would do with his WMD if he could without all fingers pointing to him? Ever hear of his reward to palestinian suicide bombers? Ever hear how he was gaming the Oil for food program? Probably not right? AH
 
back to kos with you AH. Spew more hate, lies, inuendo and stupidity
