Wasn't it somewhere around 2,752? Doesn't this deserve mention as a milestone, a very sad one that is?

2. Yes it was passed a couple of weeks ago
Remember that not everyone who was killed in the World Trade Center attacks was an American citizen

3. When do we cross the "length of WWII" marker?
Edited on Fri Oct-13-06 01:03 AM by sfwriter
We hit it in May of last year for the "war on terror." It amazes me that in the equivalent of the time since 9/11 until now, we went from Pearl Harbor to the Marshall Plan under Roosevelt and Truman.

I wonder when we cross that marker for Bush's War?

4. do you count suicides after troops get home or only combat deaths?
Of course if you count Iraqis as well that milestone was passed after about 3 days.
