Just another month in the life and death of Iraq IV

By Michael J.W. Stickings

MSNBC: "The American death toll for October climbed past 100..."

And it wasn't a very good day, either: "At least 80 people were killed across Iraq, 33 in a Sadr City bombing targeting workers." And those, of course, are reported deaths.

Overall, the Iraq War has cost at least 2,814 American lives. (Back in June, J. Kingston Pierce posted on the 2,500 milestone... and counting.) Not to mention countless Iraqi lives.

As I put it earlier today: "There is already growing opposition, and outrage, to the Iraq War. Imagine the scale of that opposition, and outrage, if more Americans actually knew what was going on."

We need to be ever mindful of the human cost of this disastrous war.
