Well You Knew This Was Coming
How long have they had this story written?
The U.S. military on Tuesday announced the deaths of six more American soldiers, pushing the U.S. military death toll since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003 to at least 2,978 _ five more than the number killed in the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.
What Kid Various wants to know is exactly how this is relevant to anything? Why is this news? We surmise that when more Americans were killed in the Pacific and Europe than were killed at Pearl Harbor the AP would've reminded us of that so we could "redeploy" from WWII.
Any bets on whether AP already has a story written on the "3,000th soldier?"
