the third day of the war, we lost 30 US troops
Nov 15 we lost 18 -- that was the day the helicopter that got shot down.
the next 3 heaviest days occured this past week
- on Friday
- on Tuesday
- on last Sunday
but "major combat operations" were declared ended May 1st, so shrub could have his photo op on the Abe Lincoln.
I guess these do not qualify as major combat operations, even though we now have 3 Marine battalions at Fallujah.
If a truce does not hold, I fear that we will with the week have more deaths than in either month of the war.
