"The U.S. military death toll in Iraq in October reached 100 after a U.S. Marine was killed on Sunday in western Anbar province.

The U.S. military said in a statement on Monday the Marine died in combat but did not provide any more details.

3. RIP, Marine
The ones who wanted this illegal war are not worthy to even mention your name, or cry crocodile tears at your passing. I pray for the ones you left behind, who will always have a hole in their hearts because of your passing.

7. AP: 101 Americans die in Iraq during October (#2814)
101 Americans die in Iraq during October

By STEVEN R. HURST, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 5 minutes ago

BAGHDAD, Iraq - The American death toll for October climbed past 100, a grim
milestone reached as a top White House envoy turned up unexpectedly in Baghdad
on Monday to smooth over a rough patch in U.S.-Iraqi ties. At least 80 people
were killed across Iraq, 33 in a Sadr City bombing targeting workers.

A member of the 89th Military Police Brigade was killed in east Baghdad Monday,
and a Marine died in fighting in insurgent infested Anbar province the day before,
raising to 101 the number of U.S. service members killed in a bloody October,
the fourth deadliest month of the war. At least 2,814 American forces have died
since the war began.

8. Don't you find it odd
that the people who so adamantly support this war find so little time to mourn the fallen? They blithely go on their way, saying "It's a war. People die." And slap a magnetic ribbon on their vehicle.
Then the get all red in the face and outraged because CNN has the audacity to show...soldiers dying. How are the Bushbots supposed to enjoy their spoiled existence when CNN shows ugly reality? It's so upsetting to their "beautiful minds". (Thank you, Barbara Bush).
Meanwhile, over at Fox News, no reality. So soothing to those without souls.

9. October U.S. death toll in Iraq hits 103
<snip>

"The American death toll for October climbed past 100, a grim milestone as a White House envoy turned up unexpectedly in Baghdad on Monday following a rough patch in U.S.-Iraqi ties. At least 81 people were killed across Iraq, including 33 in a bombing targeting workers.

The U.S. military on Tuesday announced the deaths of two soldiers, raising the number of troops killed in fighting in Iraq this month to 103.

In a brief statement, the military said one Baghdad-based soldier was killed at about 5:00 p.m. Monday after being hit by small arms fire during combat in a western district of the Iraqi capital.

A second Baghdad-based soldier was killed at around 5:30 p.m. Monday when his vehicle was struck by a roadside bomb just south of the city."

<snip>

"October already is the fourth deadliest month for American troops since the war began in March 2003. The U.S. lost 107 troops in Iraq in January 2005; at least 135 in April 2004, and 137 in November 2004."
