The rightwing fucktards, war-wimps, deserters and draft-dodgers ridicule the concerns of those of us opposed to the war who castigate the Regime for the growing casualty count among USer troops by claiming that "3000 is not that big a number." (That EXACT description was trolled across Eschaton this morning)
However, as one Atriot (sorry, I forgot who) wryly remarked, a slightly SMALLER number (2897: the reported number of casualties on IX/XI) was seized upon by the GOPukes/Fascists/Busheviks to propel us into this fucking shameful catastrophe, the +ICORP+ of Iraq.
But, then, as Emerson said, "A foolish consistency is the hallmark of the tiny mind."
ICORP: Used in lieu of "war" to describe the Invasion, Occupation, Occupation, Rape & Pillage
