It would be so easy to end this thing with one bomb... Too bad that's not an option.. War is NEVER cheap, from a money and a Lives standpoint.

Without prejudice or comment on the sacrifice made by the people on this list, it does not represent a complete list of the human cost.

There are the innocents to consider as well, those men, women and children that perished but were not allied with any combatant groups.

I beleive they deserve veneration and compensation equal to that afforded the combatants.

Yes, it's a long list. Unfortunately, it'll get longer.

But behind each of those names is an individual who didn't question the politics behind what he was called on to do, he merely did his utmost to perform the duties his country asked of him.

Unfortunately, yes, it happens in war: some give all.

May they each and every one rest in peace. May their souls know we honor their memories.

"FREEDOM!!! MINE AND YOURS!!! "

Really?...how?

Silly me! I don't like seeing Americans die as they give freedom to people who don't want it.
Don't get ME wrong. I'd rather see our guys go in balls out and take a country the way it's supposed to be taken. Not this sh*t where they're getting picked off every day.
How is this about MY freedom?
I bought the line of crap that we were fed when this first started too.
Now I can see it was indeed based on bullsh*t. No weapons, no Saddam threat and if you ask me I don't think the rest of the country would have supported going to war if it was only to "free Iraq".
That ain't what this war was supposed to be about.
But now that it is I'm supposed to still think it's a great idea and a valid reason to have Americans dying?
Nope, Sorry. MY eyes are open. You can follow blindly if you like.

cloudmax freedom....not in the sense of "we're afraid of loosing ours" but freedom from tyranny and terror.....dont start flaming...this is the wrong subject....this isnt a anti war tree hugging lets light some candles post.... I have personally buried 4 very close coworkers and friends as a result of my job...If ya want to get in a flaming fight dont do it here

TO some of the other responses up there first let me say any list like this one If it had one person on it would be long....but compaired to many other wars...the list is quite "short" due to smarter weapons and smarter tactics....

1- Remember one thing. All those terrorists, AlQueda fighters, Saddam loyalists et al are fighting the US in Iraq. They are too busy to bring the fight to US soil. As long as the fight continues overseas - Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and the other camel flea invested 4th world nations, there will be so many fewer fanantics available to come to North America. It's much better to have them flock to a sand country where they can be picked off at leisure.
2- Iraq never was about WMD or getting rid of Sadam. Well ok, GB senior had some unfinished business. Look at a map. On the left of Iraq is Syria, Jordan and Israel, On the right Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. South is Saudi Arabia and all the little oilfield nations. North are the fractured russian 'Stans. Whoever owns Iraq owns the middle east. The 'control' of Iraq by a non-muslim/arab nation will change the face of the middle east for the next 1000 years.

I am the not even CLOSE to being a liberal! Believe me! I've voted Republican ever year since I could vote, Ronald Regan! I love Fox news. I think Michael Moore is an A$$hole.
I don't have to be a bed wetting liberal to see that this is not going the way it was supposed to and Americans are dying to free a country that doesn't want to be free.AND the reasons that we were told why we were going to war were not honest reasons. I believe Saddam would have had to be in charge for quite some time to kill over 700 Americans. There really wasn't a threat there. The weapons? Hell I was convinced they were gonna find some! Now? I really believe I was lied to. I supported a war based on what I was told. Now It's a different reason. I'm supposed to just say "Ok, whatever reason you pick now is fine by me!" I don't like the idea of Americans dying for some other country's freedom. If they wanted it bad enough they would have fought for it!
No matter how long we are there, the second we leave that place will fall like Saigon because the Iraqi people are not willing to fight for their own freedom.
Don't label me a liberal tree hugger because I'm seeing some things I don't like here. I am a Republican who is concerned that a lot of Americans have and will keep dying for a reason I don't see as being important enough to justify their deaths.
No flame here. No "Bush sucks" crap. Just my opinion on a sad situation.

Succint, but it's totally irrelevant in this thread.

This isn't about your feelings on the situation. It's about those individuals who paid the ultimate price doing their duty - regardless how they, or anyone else, felt about it.
