Killed over a lie.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The number of U.S. military deaths in the
Iraq war has reached 2,500, the Pentagon said on Thursday, more than three years into a conflict that finds U.S. and allied foreign forces locked in a struggle with a resilient insurgency.

In addition, the Pentagon said 18,490 U.S. troops have been wounded in the war, which began in March 2003 with a U.S.-led invasion to topple President Saddam Hussein.

Tens of thousands of Iraqis have been killed.
I have to admit, I'm amazed the Iraquis were even mentioned.

Cue the Republican spin machine: "Liberals are filled with glee to hear this statistic, etc, etc."

May they rest in peace.
