1001 killed

1,001 soldiers have now been killed in the Iraq War. Who knows how many thousands of Iraqis have been killed since last March, and Lord knows how many civilians and soldiers have been seriously injured, as well. There are wars worth fighting. Iraq, in March 2003, within the context of the broader threat of terrorism posed by al Qaeda, was certainly not one of them. update: Josh Marshall notices a strange coincidence. update:: According to this blog, it took 8 years for us to get 1,000 combat deaths in Vietnam.
