Today is our 1,840th day in Iraq.
We'll start this morning as we always do...with the increasing casualties from the warron terra, courtesy of Antiwar.com:
Since war began (3/19/03): 4011
Since "Mission Accomplished" (5/1/03): 3872
Since Capture of Saddam (12/13/03): 3550
Since Handover (6/29/04): 3152
Since Election (1/31/05): 2573
Other Coalition Troops: 309
US Military Deaths - Afghanistan: 491
We find this morning's cost of war
passing through: $507,453,610,000.00
Do go and watch it for a minute. I timed it just now, and our war debt seems to be increasing by $10,000 every four seconds or so. Think of your annual salary, then do the math. It's sickening.
