While we are seeing real success in Iraq - and make no mistake the plan is working, the MSM camps on yet another of their "milestones", playing again their "doom and gloom, we suck" script.

Pentagon: U.S. death toll in Iraq reaches 2,500.

Three years into a war where we deposed a tyrant and established a new democracy, 2500 is a small number in comparison to that of other conflicts at their respective three-year points. For example via info please:

Total servicemembers 4,734,991
Battle deaths 53,402
Other deaths in service (nontheater) 63,114

Living veterans fewer than 500

World War II (1940–1945)
Total servicemembers 16,112,566

As you can see, we have had an amazinging low casulty rate, which is a testament to the planning, the professionalism and the SUCCESS this war has been.
