Geez, just how much deja vu can a person take?
I'm really trying hard to avoid blogging on Iraq. Absolutely not because I don't think it is the most important story going on right now, but because I think most of you are well aware of current events. But I found this story via 'alex' in the comment section over at Whiskey Bar: Body Counts
Headline news from Sky News - Witness the event
: "130 SOLDIERS KILLED IN IRAQ - REPORTS
A Pentagon source has said up to 130 US troops have been killed in fierce fighting in Iraq.
The large scale battle, described as 'intense', has taken place in the town of Ar Ramadi, 20 miles west of Fallujah.
Sky News' David Chater said: 'None of this is official yet - none of it is confirmed.'"
I'm just wondering how accurate these figures are. Because if they are at all accurate, then let the escalation begin!
Geez, if these people (our administration) had any capability to think outside of the box, we could still salvage some good out of the current mess. But if all we do is add more troops and use more force, I think the body count (US soldiers), just goes up w/o accomplishing a thing.
