2,500 Americans have now been killed in Iraq
The Americans have now lost 2,500 men in their war against Iraq. It was supposed to be a cakewalk, a stepping stone on the road to complete domination of the region; but it failed at the first hurdle.
The war goes on, but with each day that passes the Iraqis get stronger. The imperialists flail away at the mist and succeed only in killing yet more civilians.
Final victory is not yet close at hand; not unless the Iraqis put aside their differences and mount an all-out attack on the occupiers. However, even if the war continues at its present rate, sooner or later the American will no longer be able to spend treasure and blood and a withdrawal will be ordered.
