    Apparently all it takes is a trust in mantras for them to become true.

    On a side note, on CSPAN2 tonight just before the State of the Union address, one of the panelists said the government figure for allied casualties which you provide as do many others is just a bit optimistic.

    400,000 troops have returned home from combat in Iraq thus far.

    30% of these troops have sought medical attention on their return.

    120,000 allied casualties is the closer number for those who prefer more accuracy.
