More US Soldiers killed

The steady and depressing drumbeat of US deaths and woundings in Iraq continues unabated. At 5 am on Saturday in Tikrit, guerrillas detonated a bomb in Tikrit that killed two US soldiers and wounded 4, several seriously.

On Thursday, two soldiers had been killed by a roadside bomb at Habbaniyah.

On Wednesday, guerrillas blew up a home made bomb that killed one US soldier and wounded two others.

Since the US military is going to be in Iraq in force for at least a couple of years, one worries that we really are going to lose thousands of our young men and women in this occupation, and that the number of wounded could mount to nearly 10,000 before it is all over (and they are often very badly wounded).
