But Who's Counting?

Today we reached and exceeded 2,000 casualties in Iraq. That's not Iraqis--that's the good guys: soldiers and sailors of the UK, USA and a few other nations. Total killed since the invasion began=359. Wounded=1644.
I don't hear any brass bands, I see no flags waving. In fact, most of the soldiers have been hauled secretly to a stateside hospital to be sliced and diced and fitted with plastic limbs, then shipped home as damaged goods--or in a body bag.
Two thousand. You'd think somebody'd notice.
