    Grim Milestone: 1,000 Americans Dead
    By JAMES DAO and ANDREW W. LEHREN
    Published: May 18, 2010

    On Tuesday, the toll of American dead in Afghanistan passed 1,000, after a suicide bomb in Kabul killed at least five United States service members. Having taken nearly seven years to reach the first 500 dead, the war killed the second 500 in fewer than two.

    Well....we do have a new CIC don't we....

    Ditto.

    Kinda funny how that works doncha know??

    All of a sudden all those deaths aren't quite as important now that The Great One is the Prez and not Bush. Certainly not worthy of the front page anywhere but on Fox.

    I can remember how the LSM were all over that first thousand deaths in Iraq.

    Jeeze.

    Honest, a Dem told me at the beginning of 2009 that the wars held no interest to the Dems any longer and that's why they are rarely in the news.

    Honest.

    So, it was a mistake to get into a war in Afghanistan?

    Or it's a mistake for the person who's lap the war was thrust into, to actually carry out the steps needed to eventually end the war?

    Which is it? The spin from you people varies so much from one day to the next that I can't tell anymore.

    Oh, and the fact that "only 500 died" before Obama took over says nothing except that Bush pussyfooted around for 7 years in Afghanistan, letting the Taliban regain a strong foothold, while he went off and attacked the wrong country.

    Of course now comes the choruses of "Why do you always Blame Bush?" defensiveness that we all have heard a million times...
