Bush's Carnage Continues

Four US soldiers are killed and twenty are injured in a mortar attack in Samarra, bringing Bush's body count to 878 of our men and women and 998 for the coalition as a whole.

Our Marines have been paying a particularly heavy price in Western Iraq recently, but the national media is focused elsewhere.

Sure, various administration officials predicted that the violence in Iraq would increase during the transition to "sovreignty", but that in no way justifies turning a blind eye to the sacrifices our brothers and sisters have offered to the altar of Bush's father issues and the Neo-con's pipe dreams.
