1. None of the the son or daughter of a rich man, a senator or congressman
or probably one of their own. Just another kid from Podunk so no big deal.

I'd better put the :sarcasm: thingy here because lately I've seen some really sarcastic/ironic statements taken seriously here.

2. So the ABC News crew wants to break out the champagne?
They are thrilled we are "only" losing less than two brave soldiers a day?

What patriots these news people are! :sarcasm:

4. Perhaps I should have used the sarcasm smilie. ABC is one
of the few news outlets that even acknowledges who and how many died weekly.
Don't be angry at ABC; direct your ire at me or the admin who is making
this number possible.

6. Oops on my part, too, then.
I didn't get to watch it today and I thought they might have been behaving cavalierly about it. IT wouldn't surprise me if they were. The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer mentions it every night, I think if the DOD makes an announcement that day, and they have their memorial at the end of the week.

8. Attacks on US troops are way up
But after three years, the US soldiers and Marines finally have better armor.
Injuries are through the roof.
280 injured in January 2006, 600 in July.
Attacks are up, injuries have doubled, but deaths are down.
