is coming

currently at 2,904 u.s. military casualties in Iraq, only 96 remain. We may see that occur mid January, perhaps January 15th, Martin Luther King's real birthday and a day of Peace. Going back in time it was January 15, 1991 that brought the announcement of PaPa Bush's deadline to Iraq. Irony is ever present.
