    Why does this report say "coalition" soldiers instead of American soldiers? Nice BBC/White House-like spin.

    Everything else I've read this morning says there were 7 American soldiers and an Iraqi interpreter in the group that was attacked ... other words, 4 or 5 more American soldiers are dead and 2 or 3 are missing, because there is no confimation whether the Iraqi interpreter is dead or missing.

    And we just keep sending soliders to slaughter.

    How many more American lives must we waste to satisfy Bush and Cheney's lust?

    Lust for what?

    I thought it was Carter who had lust in his heart.

    Yep, FB . . . Tom Friedman's ever-recycled rich man's line . . . "We'll know more, in six months".

    No shit.

    You can argue in favor of certain aspects of the war, but the presented rationales, run-up,
    and general conduct of it have been broadly atrocious. And given the players at the top, you
    could anticipate little else. Too bad, for those men risking their necks, over there . . . and for us.
