So what Al Ja-Reuters is actually saying is that in over three years of war, we have lost ONLY 2500? While every loss hurts, can anyone name for me another war in which we lost fewer in the same time period? I don't think the media understand when they trumpet 2500 dead, most people say, "In three years of war? That's low."
Reuters and our news media also fail to mention that Iraqi security forces (military and police) have lost approximately 4800 personnel. The insurgents have also killed another 10,000 Iraqi civilians.
