Death Toll in Iraq Mounts


3,663 Iraqis have been killed in war-related violence in the last six months, according to an Associated Press count. This nation is also nearing the 2,000th U.S. military casualty of the war. Given the 'stay the course" policy of the Bush administration, that tragic milestone could be reached before the end of October.

The American Friends Service Committee, Gold Star Families for Peace, Military Families Speak Out and Iraq Veterans Against the War have joined in issuing a call for public actions the day after the 2,000th death is announced. The day will be marked with memorials, vigils and other public events that parallel the theme: Not One More Death, Not One More Dollar.

Please go to the AFSC website to sign up to host an event in your community or to RSVP to one that is already planned. Today we are at 132 events in 36 states nationwide.

Your blog contained issues relating to business hosting site web
which I found quite absorbing. I would argue that business hosting site web
matters are best left to the professionals in most cases.

Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.
