Here's a number you'll not be hearing in the newsposted by The Vidiot @ 5:50 PM Permalink 'Cause if'n you did, there'd be a whole heap or crap goin' down.
It’s the number 89,457 [.doc].
As of Nov. 9, that’s how many American casualties there were in Iraq and Afghanistan since Oct. 7, 2001, when the Afghan war officially began. That includes a tire-screeching 75,134 dead, wounded-in-action, and medically evacuated due to illness, disease, or injury in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), and 14,323 and counting in Afghanistan, or Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF).
Tomorrow, on Veterans Day, please keep in mind all the casualties we DON'T hear on the news.
