A New Milestone in Iraq:Five Hundred US Soldiers Dead
A new milestone was reached in Iraq this week: the death toll for US soldiers reached the 500 mark. Most of these deaths have occurred since President Bush declared an end to the major hostilities on May 1. And despite claims by the administration that Saddam's capture has led to the arrest of key Baath loyalists who were attacking them, the attacks continue unabated. By US official accounts, there are 17 attacks on US soldiers every day. There have been more soldiers killed in this intervention in Iraq than in the first four years of US intervention in Vietnam.
