4 more Troops Killed Yesterday in Iraq = 4,000 Dead

Another four of our troops were blown away in their vehicle yesterday in southern Baghdad which brought the total dead in Iraq to 4,000. For daily specifics on our dead and wounded military there, check at

Such information is generally played down by the Bush administration. We continued to play out this game in Viet Nam until we had reached 58,000 plus. We used to read the names of the dead at Riverside Church in hourly turns. Perhaps we should revive that practice? Some may recall that only the threat of drafting college and graduate students finally brought the anti-war efforts to a fruition. Our current dead and wounded represent only a small proportion of our communities which perhaps explains our general indifference to such horrors.

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
