1,600 to 1,700 in a month! US Soldiers Killed in Iraq

Since this blog is themed and focused on our American troops, I've had the dubious and distasteful tasking of keeping track of the growing numbers of troops killed, troops wounded, Iraqis killed.

On Mother's Day, May 7, the number of American troops killed was hovering at 1,600 and the day after Mother's Day it was 1,600. A gift to our nation's mothers.

Think a bit more globally and we have gifted to other nation's mothers our imported destruction.

June 13, the weekend before Father's Day and the number of American troops killed is at 1,700. A gift to our nation's fathers. An imported gift to other nation's fathers.

May 8 to June 13, a month passes, and I have to change the blog from 1,600 to 1,700 American troops killed in Iraq.

Marking the Memoriam with entry into this blog.
