Same job, different uniform.

I ran this on my own blog, but I thought I'd share it with ya'll:

Yesterday the media front-paged a 2,000 milestone -- the number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq. This number got me thinking...

About 4,500 soldiers died on D-Day alone in 1944.

Nearly 3,000 Americans (civilian, by and large) died on Sept. 11, 2001.
And how many more citizens have been killed on our soil by foriegn terrorists since?

I honor the memory of every solider who's paid the ultimate price. But again I'm drawn to the albeit uncemented conclusion that, at least in terms of the United States of America, this Iraq thing can't be a total disaster.
