that is the official death toll of US forces in Iraq. the official death toll of 9/11 is approximately 2973. (there were approximately 40 people removed from the death toll in 2003, however, as they are still pulling remains out of the site 5 years later, we’ll use the “official” tally for the sake of illustration) with the death toll of any given month in Iraq ranging from as little as 19 to as much as 137, an average of 67 soldiers a month, the grand total of US military deaths in Iraq is less than 3 months away from eclipsing the number of deaths on 9/11.

so, as you head to the ballot box next week for our midterm elections, keep this thought in your mind: whomever you choose to vote for, by the time the 110th Congress enters office, the US government will have killed more of our citizens in Iraq than Osama Bin Laden has in the US.
