While Bush continues to lie, more Americans die
http://www.capitolhillblue.com/news/publish/America_at_...

As President George W. Bush continues to publicly push the myth that the United States is winning the war in Iraq, the American death toll for October hit 100 on Monday, extending a killing streak that marks the month as the deadliest since January 2005.

With a week to go before crucial midterm Congressional elections, Republicans stand to lose control of Congress over Bush's failed Iraq policy.

A bomb blast killed 28 people and wounded 60 on Monday in a square in the Shi'ite Muslim Sadr City district in Baghdad where laborers were gathering to wait for job offers, Interior Ministry sources said.

The U.S. military said a Marine was killed in combat in western Anbar province on Sunday, bringing the death toll for the month to 100. October was already the deadliest month since January 2005 when 107 U.S. troops were killed. The highest monthly toll was in November 2004 when 137 deaths were recorded.

Since the March 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq to topple Saddam Hussein, a total of 2,813 U.S. troops have been killed.

http://www.carryabigsticker.com / Mine arrived in the UK last week, the one with 2803 names printed on it, so I can personally vouch for the comnpany being reliable. I'm assuming it's not already banned nationwide over there.

edit - look's like they sold out of current stock. More expected in November some time. Obviously more popular than I'd realised.
