Combat related deaths

As we remember the brave soldiers who fell in combat, let us also remember those who's death is directly related to their duties but are not being counted. The Bush administration is waging a propaganda war against the US, and only the most gullible don't realize the lies and cover up. Officially (as of this writing), there are 4083 Coalition deaths in Iraq and 821 in Afghanistan. That doesn't count other deaths from injuries, and certainly doesn't count those seriously wounded. Even worse:

Hushing Up Crisis Of Suicide, Mental Scars:
CBS News did its own extensive research, finding that more than 6,250 American veterans took their own lives in 2005 alone. That comes to slightly more than 17 suicides every day.
Note that the official casualties list is of "Coalition" forces 2001-present, and the larger number of suicides is from the US in 2005.

The shame of being a conservative has never been greater. The surge failed. It's time for the adults to take over.
