4,000 killed

After four soldiers were killed this weekend due to a roadside bomb, the war in Iraq has reached a new horrific milestone just days after the 5th anniversary -- the 4,000th solider was killed in Iraq.

That means 97% of U.S. casualties have come since our national schoolyard bully stood under the "Mission Accomplished" banner on May 1st, 2003. For a detailed account of casualties among all coalition forces in Operation Iraqi Freedom, including the fallen soldiers' names go here.

Jan. 20th, 2009 can't come quick enough.
