Let's See...What Could They Possibly Mean?
Military Deaths In Iraq Exceed 9/11 Toll
In a span of a few hours, 2,973 people were killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. In a span of 45 months, the number of American troops killed in Iraq exceeded that grim toll as the war continues. The milestone in Iraq came on Christmas, nearly four years after the war began, according to a count by The Associated Press. In announcing the Monday deaths of three soldiers, the toll from those fighting the war surpassed the toll from those killed by terrorists in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.
Now, just what is the point of this bullshit? Is it to rub our noses in the war deaths? Or imply that now it was starting to go past quid pro quo? Or maybe it just wanted to make the point that our President now had as much blood on his hands as the terrorists did!
The Drive By media is too clever by half (or too dumb, by the whole). It sneaks in the words 'bogged down' about halfway through the article--as if we won't notice. Then, it allows that it's just the DEMOCRATS who think so and that President Bush (not President Bush and the Republicans--and many Democrats, too) supported going into Iraq. No, this is just Bush's mad scheme to legislate democracy in the world, or some such.
Gee, you don't think they mean to demonize President Bush and hurt the war effort, do ya?
