3,504 and counting

Over 3,500 now. That's American soldiers killed in the Iraq war, according to icasualties.org.

Do you feel safer than you did five years ago, before the US invaded Iraq? I certainly don't. In fact, living in earthquake country, I feel significantly less safe than five years ago. At least then I had some hope that the national guard was standing by to help recover and rebuild.

By the way, that guy bin Laden is still out there somewhere.

But I guess none of this is "news" so it doesn't matter.

We know someone who got killed by an IED in Iraq a couple weeks before his wife gave birth to #3. He went to high school with my DH and their oldest DD was born in the same hospital the day before our DD. Very sad :-(
