Here's an article pointing out that the number of American troops to have died in Iraq is now 2978. That's five more than the official death toll from the 9/11 attacks.

So? That figure is completely irrelevant since Iraq had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11.... Nor were there any Iraqis among the hijackers.... Nor did Saddam have any links to Al Qaeda.... Nor did he have any WMD's that he was about to give to terrorists.... Nor has Bush explained in a credible fashion how Saddam was a threat to the United States.... Nor has Dick Cheney explained why we weren't "greeted as liberators...."

All of which raises an interesting point: Why are we in Iraq?

Good question.
