The Forgotten War

I usually go by the official CNN toll for my Iraq war casualty figures. They count soldiers from other countries as well as Americans, but not civilian "contractors" or journalists. That's regrettable--I wish there was someplace I could find them all listed--but I don't think anyone does publish a truly comprehensive list like that. The CNN Iraq casualty counter may be found at

Now at long last, CNN had a similar casualty site up for the Empire's forgotten war, the one in Afghanistan. Did you know that we've lost 226 dead in Afghanistan since 2001? Yeah, it's mounting up. Two more Imperial troops were killed recently. Them hillbillies are starting to get stroppy.
