Well it happened. Casualty number two thousand from the Iraq war. It is a sad and tragic day when any American soldier loses their life. In my mind, one casualty is too many! Having said that, we are living in an incredible time. The war in Iraq is one of the most successful wars for our country up to this point. The biased media will play up the casualties as if they are some unbelievable number. Well I have done some research and consider these casualties from previous modern wars:

World War I 320,710
World War II 1,078,162
Korean War 136,935
Vietnam War 211,471

We have had only two thousand casualties in a war in which we are fighting a number of countries, not just Iraq. Make no mistake about it, we are fighting Syria. Iraq,Iran and probably all the rest of the countries in the Middle East.

With only two thousand casualties consider what has happened. Iraq has ratified their constitution, has had two successful election days, and in a couple of months will have another. Saddam Hussein, one of the most barbaric leaders in history, sits today in a jail cell, waiting to be tried by his own people for his heinous crimes. His two terrorist, sadistic sons, have gone into a Godless eternity where they face a forever Hell. Where are the reports about the historic accomplishment of our military? Where are the stories of epic changes in the middle east due to the resolve and leadership of our commander and chief President George W. Bush. Where are the stories of the incredible men and women in our military who are achieving things no one ever thought could happen?You won't find those stories, at least not in the mainstream media, because we live in a country where the mainstream media is a PRAVDA type propaganda machine for the liberal left.

Well let me just say I grieve and pray for the families of those who have lost loved ones in this war. I pray that each one that left this earth knew Christ as his or her Savior. I know that each one left this earth a hero. May God bless the men and women of the United States Armed Forces!
