100 More Soldiers Killed This Month

U.S. April death toll in Iraq passes 100

AP
Excerpt
BAGHDAD – Five U.S. military personnel were killed over the weekend in
Iraq, including three by a roadside bomb in Baghdad, the military said Monday, pushing the American death toll past 100 in the deadliest month so far this year.

Four Army soldiers died in eastern Baghdad, a predominantly Shiite Muslim area where U.S. and Iraqi forces have stepped up operations in the security crackdown that began Feb. 14. A Marine was killed in Anbar province, a Sunni Arab insurgent stronghold west of the capital.

The killings of the Americans came as U.S. troops have been increasingly deployed on the streets of Baghdad and housed with Iraqi troops in joint security stations away from their heavily fortified bases, raising their vulnerability to attacks.

A roadside bomb killed three American soldiers and an Iraqi interpreter on a combat patrol Sunday in eastern Baghdad, the military said. A U.S. soldier was slain Saturday by small arms fire during a patrol in the same part of the city. A Marine was killed Sunday during combat operations in Anbar.

HLs Take
The death toll of our soldiers just keeps escalating. Meanwhile Bush continues to insist that we are making progress, which of course he has been saying ever since “Mission Accomplished” meanwhile the administration refuses to take their heads out of the sand and admit that the war is lost. Why would they, the oil money just keeps on pouring in. Bush wants to keep the war going until his term is up because he wants to maximize the blood profits for him, daddy, Cheney, and the gang.

    HL why don’t you read what one of your fellow Die hard libs who has been againest the war from day one has to say about the US leaving Iraq now.
    Michael Ware.
    Ware agreed, but argued that winning the war was in America’s best interest: “Well, even more than that, if you just wanted to look at it in terms of purely American national interest, if U.S. troops leave now, you’re giving Iraq to Iran, a member of President Bush’s ‘Axis of Evil,’ and al Qaeda. That’s who will own it. And so, coming back now, I’m struck by the nature of the debate on Capitol Hill, how delusional it is. Whether you’re for this war, or against it; whether you’ve supported the way it’s been executed, or not; it doesn’t matter. You’ve broke it, you’ve got to fix it now. You can’t leave, or it’s going to come and blow back on America.”
    And he should know because he has been there the whole time right. He is more informed than our media or government and he is a Liberal so you have the same views.

    First of all, not all liberals have the “same views.” Secondly, not all of us are suggesting that we simply leave Iraq tomorrow. This will obviously be a process… that is the whole point of the timetable. But I think the numbers speak for themselves at this point. We have been there for years now, and what exactly do we have to show for it? And most importantly, how exactly should this be “fixed” or “won”??? No one seems to have a clear answer for that. As Joe Biden said in the debate the other night, it is virtually impossible for there to be a centralized, democratic government in Iraq. We’ll be there for decades waiting for THAT to happen.

    In the meantime, 100 more US troops dead in April, and countless others as we stay, stuck in the middle of an Iraqi civil war: http://www.thenewsroom.com/details/252681/US

    Yeah Bush broke it alright. So you are saying that we have to stay there now because Bush has screwed up so badly, that we have to stay there now to fix all the damage he has done, yeah thats great. So you agree then that Iraq was much better off when Saddam was in charge?

    By the way I saw that newsbuster piece too. typical of them to twist the words around.

    This is from Crooks and Liars. It’s got the video of Ware on Anderson Cooper 360
    http://www.crooksandliars.com/2007/04/28/michael-ware-on-the-surge/

    Cooper: Where does the so called surge – others would say just escalation, where does it stand? How’s it going? Too soon to tell?”

    Ware: “Oh, way too soon to tell. But what I can tell you right now that, in terms of Baghdad, if you want to look at it through a microscope without looking at the rest of the country the surge will have an impact. But at the end of the day if America wants to win in Iraq it would need to surge the whole country. But it can’t. So what it’s done in Baghdad, you’re seeing changes in the violence. You hear these politicians saying sectarian murders are down, yes that’s true. But at what cost? American deaths are up.”

    Dont worry Bill, God already told George W Bush that he was doing the right thing in Iraq so you don’t have to defend this crusade. With W’s help God will get rid of all the terrorists in Iraq. Once all the evildoers are gone then you can hug all the Iraqis you want.

  5. Bill Says:

    Once again HL doesn’t want the truth out. Jenny you are just like every other Liberal because you want the troops out of Iraq and you don’t care about what happens to the US in the future. You are one of those people that will be complaining about the al Qaeda attacking the US again and no one did anything about it. But now that they are doing something about it right now you don’t want them to. As to HL we all know that he doesn’t care about anyone but himself and that is shown every time he posts something on here about Iraq or the troops. And i hate me for my freedoms doesn’t care just read what he posted. “Once all the evildoers are gone then you can hug all the Iraqis you want.”

    HL your sliping you are letting your guard down and your caring about no one but yourself is showing.
