Every Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Defense provides an online update of American military casualties from the "war" in Iraq and Afghanistan. The campaign is referred to as Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF).
Don't forget that wounded on the battlefield usually means embedded shrapnel and loss of limbs, not scrapes or sprains.
This isn't including the countless numbers of Iraqi citizens caught in cross fire.
The report went out at 10 a.m. how many more people do you think died since then?
Check back next week for the stunning conclusion ... err, sorry there's no end in sight. Check back next week and hope that number didn't jump too many places. Wait, what is this war about again?
Happy Tuesday, don't forget to top off that gas tank!
