We have been at war in Iraq for about 5 years. The us military casualties are listed at around 3000 for this period. We have been "advising" and providing "mucho dinero" in Colombia for a much longer period.....supposedly in an ongoing battle against the drug problem. What have been the accumlative US military casualties in this "police action"? Where are the US casualties listed for Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador listed.....or are they combined with the casualities of the middle east?
