Rush is playing this quote right now..........
[Iraq News]: Nearly as many Iraqi security forces have been killed in Iraq since June 2004 as U.S. troops have died since 2003, a top Pentagon official says.
Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz told the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday that 1,342 Iraqi police, soldiers and national guardsmen have died in Iraq since the country assumed sovereignty.
That number does not include a dozen Iraqi recruits killed Thursday by gunmen who ambushed their minivan near Kirkuk, according to news reports. It was just one of a string of incidents nationwide that claimed at least 29 in a surge of violence following a mostly peaceful election day.
At least 1,471 Americans have died in Iraq since March 2003, according to Wolfowitz. Another 126 coalition members have died as well.
That is great! VDH wisdom needs to be heard.
A BTT for the afternoon crowd. VDH at his very best.
I would like to be pinged whenever Victor Davis Hanson is mentioned BUMP
Perhaps we should e-mail teddy a copy of this:
February 4, 2005 An Update on Chris from Ken Herrera: Hello, Ive learned more about the place Chris will be stationed in Iraq. Its on the southeastern side of Baghdad near an airfield that was once known as the Rashid air base. It was the largest military base in Iraq before the war. Chris base, known as Forward Operating Base Rustimyah, is on the grounds of what was once Iraqs version of West Point. It is about as safe as anyplace can be these days in Iraq but does come under very occasional mortar fire and there was one attempt to penetrate the grounds by a car bomber this past summer. That attempt failed thanks to Iraqi security forces, several of whom gave their lives protecting the American soldiers inside. FOB Rustimyah was also formerly known as Camp Muleskinner and Camp Cuervo, named after a U.S. soldier who died in Iraq. Anyone interested in more information on this base can do a Google search for Camp Cuervo and youll find lots of stuff. Thank you again for your interest, and oh, one other thing, Chris will have Internet access at FOB Rustimyah, so hell soon be checking in almost daily. Monday Ill update you on other details of his deployment that I prefer not to talk about until that time.
