I am here. That number is so bogus. It includes car accidents. Land Mines that are found and disarmed. Accidentel discharges of weapons. Every time an explosion is heard, whether it explodes anywhere near a soldier or whether anyone even knows what the explosion was it gets reported. Every time a warning shot is fired at a confused Iraqi motorist at a checkpoint it gets reported. ETC... I read ALL the daily reports and I've seen such silly stuff in those reports as "Bad Weather" and "lost weapon found that had been dropped by a soldier...

Stick to the Casulty reports.

ROFL ? I am quite surprised and disappointed to find you so flippant about this . . .

We just hit 1100 Military Fatalities, and 7532 Wounded. This is no ROFL matter.

I take the U.S. wounded and KIA very, very seriously. If anyone should appreciate how serious this is, I would have expected it to be you.

I laugh at your promotion of those faulty figures. 1100 dead is less
then a single trainign accident in World War II
