Full Circle In 12 Days
A year after we toppled Saddam's statue, we're right back where we started. During the first 12 days of April, 2004,
73 76 US troops have been killed
the total for the entire month of April, 2003. In fact, this is a greater American death toll than the first 12 days of the war, when we lost 65 troops in March, 2003.
Not to worry, though. Says Bush
, "we're plenty tough and we'll remain tough." I'm guessing he has Psalm 3:6
I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
Good thing "coalition" troops are just fighting a small faction
[Update: CNN is reporting 76 KIA
this month [Update of the update: so's Lunaville. Now it's official.]
