4000 U.S. Fatalities in Iraq - So Far

Today the Associated Press reported that the U.S. Department of Defense confirmed the deaths of four U.S. soldiers in Iraq, bringing the American death toll to 4,000. When I posted my very first article on this blog in November of 2004, some 849 U.S. soldiers had been killed in Iraq. The four American soldiers who lost their lives today died when their patrol vehicle was blown up by a roadside bomb in southern Baghdad. The estimate for Iraqi civilian casualties is anywhere from 89,000 to well over 600,000, depending on the sources quoted. I have no art related anecdote to connect to these cheerless statistics - they offer they own profundities.
