Re: 73,000 AMERICAN DEAD
A quick search of "Iraq US Casualties" comes up with numbers that are quite a ways away from 73,000. Both ICasualties and AntiWar.com come up with 4351 dead and 31,536 wounded whil Global Security has 4,269 and 30,182. Everyone should beware of single source reporting. I find it is helpful to look at a few sites on the left and a few on the right, and if there numbers agree within %10 or so, its a pretty safe bet the true number is somewhere in between them.
If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate.
