4,000 dead in Iraq – Left wing rejoices.

Remember all of them.

How do you cheapen the sacrifices and advances made by our military?  Only focus on death, and only do so when so-called milestones are reached.  Yes, 4,000 deaths is a tragedy, as was 3,874, a number the media ignored because it wasn’t round.  Remember when 3,000 was reached?  That was well over a year ago…

But do not let the media’s decision that this should now matter confuse the point of the good accomplished, the steps forward made in progress.  No doubt Keith Olbermann and MSNBC will do their best to paint this as some sort of turning point and express their fake outrage on their shows this evening.  But why would they not cover any others?  Why would they not cover the good news?  Why won’t Keith Olbermann go to Iraq?  Is it because the troops don’t support him any more than he deep down supports them?

As the Left dances in the streets at this number, and they counted it down, don’t be fooled by their outrage, it is fake.  Honor our dead by honoring their lives.  Remember all of our war dead, every single one of the 4,000 in Iraq, the 36,596 in Korea, the 58,177 in Vietnam, the 116,516 in World War I, 405,399 in World War II and the 618,222 in Civil War.  We wouldn’t be the country we are without the sacrifices made by all of them.

    I’m a Soldier in the U.S. Army and when I heard news of the 4000 death mark I became sick to my stomach. I’m lucky enough to have been to Iraq and return home to my family but so many of my fellow Soldiers have not been as fortunate. And in my heart i feel like every one of those 4000 deaths our president is to be blamed for.

    I’ve opened up a discussion on my blog so I can talk to people and answer their questions and hopefully make people understand that not all military are supporting this war and that every one of those deaths was important and unneeded. I’d like it you’d stop by and toss in your two cents.

    I’m all for defending my country but U.S. did not need to be defended from Iraq.

    The one number the our friends in the mainstream media don’t report, but had no problem before hostilities, is 50,000. That is what they said “might” be the number if Saddam’s Republican Guard, etc. fought to the end. Of course they would never say they made a mistake or fabricate the news (Dan Rather).

    alright 4000 deaths is bad and all. But in 5 years that is absolutly nothing! as stated in the last paragraph, we have lost thousands more in other wars. This country, in my opinion has gotten too soft. Who has ever heard of a war without loss. I for one fully support our president, we need to stay in the middle east and finish what we started, or they’ll just attack us again. Or make it worse for the civilians that live over there

    how many tours in Iraq have you made? its easy to say continue the war when you are not actively involved in it.
