98 G.I.'s Stayed the Course this month.
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061028/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iraq...

BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. military said Saturday that a Marine had been killed in restive Anbar province, raising to 98 the number of American forces killed in Iraq during October, the fourth deadliest month since the war began in March 2003.

The Marine, assigned to Regimental Combat Team 5, died Friday from "wounds sustained due to enemy action," in the western province, the military said in a statement.

The name of the Marine is withheld pending notification of the family.

There have been only three months in which more U.S. forces died in Iraq: 107 in January 2005; at least 135 in April 2004, and 137 in November 2004.

They didn't just talk the talk, they walked the walk.

mr. bush will tell you, "it's worth it".

That`s what Bush said he`d accomplish in Iraq. That despicable little man should be behind bars.
