When Israel went ballistic and decided to murder Lebanese civilians in cold blood, the nation's attention was transferred from Iraq.
U.S. wounded as of August 30, 2006 stand at 19,773 and U.S. deaths stand at 2,642. We will probably see wounded surpass 20,000 in October and deaths surpassing 3,000 in November. The wounded figures do not take into account those soldiers not diagnosed yet with PTSD or other diseases they may have contracted during their tours.
In three major polls recently, all had numbers at least 66% AGAINST OUR PRESENCE IN IRAQ. Bush has been using his "stern face" lately to reiterate his position of our continued presence and the continued drain on our economy. Even mainstream Amerika is getting a bit tired of the word "terrorism". Look for a new moniker soon.
Meanwhile, while media is once again turning their cameras back towards Iraq, Israel continues to violate the ceasefire.
So much war - so little time for humanity.
