UPDATE: America’s North Shore Journal has been tracking numbers from MNF-I and put together this graph:
US troop losses verus anti-Iraqi Forces
This won’t make any headlines today.
The US military has been fighting in Iraq for over 5 years.
The losses have now reached 4,000.
The US has never lost so few soldiers in a major conflict over the same period of time. This shows the superior ability of the US military. But, sadly this won’t get played out that way in the liberal media. Don’t expect the media to put this grim milestone into context.

The media has not been able scream quagmire for a while so watch for the MSM to take full advantage of this milestone today.
Iraq Coalition Casualties
Regardless of how well things are going in Iraq or how important it is to the international community that Iraq becomes a success, today’s news will give Democrats and the media hope that the US will still lose this war.
