The death toll for coalition military forces in Iraq hit 3,000 Monday, according to a CNN tally. Which is sad,these people all have families.There more than just a number/statistic/Casulties of war.They are Mothers,Fathers,Sons,Daughters,Brothers and Sisters.Yes,they signed up for the millitary,and all they ever asked was to not be put in harms way for no good reason.America and the coalition have failed these brave people.They didnt die providing freedom or liberating anyone.They didnt die protecting us.They died fighting someones failed agenda.And there in lies the tragedy.My thoughts go out to the families of these people.My hats off to them for a courage and bravery,as well as giving up their lives.Hopefully there will be an end to this senseless loss of life.And then i wont have to post another thread entitled "Coalition deaths hit 6,000".

You can add these to the total as well


(MSNBC)-BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. military reported Wednesday that 10 American troops had been killed on Tuesday, raising the death toll so far this month to 69 and putting October on track to be the deadliest month for coalition forces since January 2005.

White House spokesman Tony Snow said the deaths would not make President Bush reconsider his plans for Iraq.

"Victory"!?And "To Win"!?

So thats what all these men people are dying for.But whos victory?What deems victory?How many more have to die until "victory"?From the sounds of things,many more.


(RawStory)-US says troop deaths in Iraq are price of victory

Washington- US military deaths in Iraq are the price of fighting for victory in the battle against terrorism, the White House said Wednesday, as the US military reported 10 soldiers killed in a single day. The casualties in a string of separate attacks Tuesday raised this month's US death toll above 60, making October already one of the bloodiest months for US troops since the March 2003 invasion.
rawstory.com...




Asked by a reporter whether the latest deaths would prompt US President George W Bush to change strategy, White House spokesman Tony Snow said: "No, the strategy is to win."

Bush "grieves for the people who have served" in Iraq, but victory "comes at a cost," Snow said. rawstory.com...

I suppose the only way to give this post a impact and meaning is to dedicate it to those who have died.By putting a face and explanation of how the died in battle,to get a full understanding of the senseless loss of life.

i have a serious issue i need to have answered.

why does the media release statistics like this in an effort to appeal to our emotions? doesnt anyone realize by thinking rationally, that people die in war? do americans really believe that western soldiers are invincible, and shouldnt be "allowed" to die? are they really that arrogant and ignorant?

ITS A FREAKING WAR, PEOPLE. PEOPLE WILL DIE. DEATH IS INEVITABLE.

not only that, but our opponents do not follow the alleged "rules of war". they are so engrossed with their religious beliefs, that they happily strap bobms to them selves in order to take out an american convoy. its called unconventional warfare. the modern american military is not trained, and never has been trained, to fight against guerillas. the best analogy i can thing of is david and goliath.

my heart goes out to the familes who lost a loved one, but i fail to understand why people dont realize that people will die in a war.

"my heart goes out to the familes who lost a loved one, but i fail to understand why people dont realize that people will die in a war."

People do realize that people will die in a war,but the question is,should they?Is there a good reason were sending these brave people to die?IMO,no there isnt.So therefore people dont have to accept the deaths that are occuring.As far as the media reporting the deaths,they should.Why hide the devestating cost of this "war" and the loss of lives.I say keep reporting it till people get sick,and then maybe they will wake up and realize these people are dying for no good reason.

It looks to me like at the rate of death since the last month we will be losing the most soldiers ever before Christmas.

What a way to bring the holidays to the families of the fallen heroes.

Sad.

well, assuming terrorism, specifically the groups and persons supposedly behind the 9/11 attack, ISNT a fabricatated truth, we are sending our soldiers there to eliminate the problem from the source.

i mean, again assuming terrorism really is a threat, would you rather have us not be there? would you rather have their "soldiers" on our land(s)?

dont get me wrong, i agree that the iraq war has turned into an indefinite, perhaps even unwinnable war (much like vietnam). but the bottom line is, its still a war. and as i said before, people, both combatants and non-combatants, die in war, on both sides.

i guess im just objecting to the media portryaing the effects of war as unusual and abnormal. i mean, what did they expect to happen in a war? did they really expect the us to just blitzkreig though afghanistan and iraq?
