    We have a new President that insisted he would change things. Every day Bush was in office we had a daily reminder of how many troops had died while he was President for his decision to conduct war. Where is that Body bag Count for Obama's decision to increase troop numbers in Afghanistan and continue that war?

    Hmm ... seems the right wingnuts are slacking to me. Of course this makes me wonder if the left wingnuts are actually more tech and internet savvy like the stereotype says ...

    ... hmm ... that is a mystery.

    Every day? Exaggerate much?

    The body count is right here where it's always been.

    How about you start yourself your own body count website for troops killed in action since Obama took office? Nothing is stopping you.

    Anyway ....

    I expect media attention again at 4500 and 5000.

    Wel the msm had their Mission Accomplished moment on Nov 4th. So the daily body count was shelved right next to journalistic integrity.

    Deadly Afghan July for U.S.-led forces - Afghanistan- msnbc.com

    Rate of international forces deaths so far this month about three a day is approaching some of the highest levels of the Iraq war, prompting a U.S. official to call July an extraordinarily difficult month.

    Ya cause when Bush was President the Media said nothing till 4000 dead, right, you dumb fuck?

    We got reminded all the time how many died while Bush was President. The Press fell all over themselves to tell us every day how many new Troops got killed.

    Where are those lancet dimwits to claim millions of dead Afghans? Where are the demands to see the flag draped coffins?

    By the way when the press does start paying attention and starts reporting the same way under Obama as they did under Bush it will be because the LEFT is tired of Obama. It won't be some right wing group posting it.

    Love the double standard. By the way RETARD, Afghanistan is no longer Bush's war, it became Obama's the minute he funded it and sent more troops there. Where is the gnashing of teeth, the screams for our troops to come home? How come Sheehan is not camping outside the White House? How come the press has completely forgotten her?
