Two U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Insurgents have killed two U.S. soldiers from the 1st Armoured Division in separate attacks south of Baghdad, the U.S. military says.

One soldier died from wounds received in a mortar attack on his unit on Friday, while the other died of bullet wounds sustained in a sniper ambush the same day, the statement said on Saturday.

1. How sad.. Reuters UK?
Unbelievable. Several of our troops have been killed this week, but the media has pretty much ignored it, other than local news.. but this is being reported by Reuters in the UK? Used to be that Yahoo and the other main news pages would have this front and center. How many have died this week and been totally ignored?

3. Don't worry. They'll have a major media event for the 1,000th victim
Soldiers dying just doesn't seem to have the same impact as it used to on the American audiences. :eyes: Not that the right wing ever cared.

5. The 1AD was due back last March
Bush extended their deployment four more months, or longer. Families are very unhappy.

Four U.S. soldiers die in separate incidents, military says
By Associated Press, 5/15/2004 00:26



BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) The U.S. military on Saturday announced the deaths of four soldiers: two from wounds suffered in rebel attacks, one in a vehicle accident and one from natural causes.

A soldier died at 3 p.m. Friday from wounds he received during a mortar attack that day, and another soldier died on the same day from bullet wounds suffered when a sniper ambushed his unit, the military said.

Early Friday, a military vehicle overturned during a patrol, killing a soldier, the military said.

All three soldiers belonged to the U.S. Army's 1st Armored Division and all died south of Baghdad.
