More than 10,000 Iraqis Killed in the Past Four Months

The robots are running on Double D batteries:

"In Iraq, a country that was brutalized and traumatized by a cruel and dangerous dictatorship is now undertaking the slow, difficult, and uncertain steps to secure a new future, under a representative government -- one that is at peace with its neighbors, rather than a threat to their own people, their neighbors, and to the world."
-Donald Rumsfeld, speaking to the American Legion in Salt Lake City, Utah

"We should not assume for one minute that those terrorists will not continue to come after the American homeland. That is why President (George W.) Bush calls Iraq a central front in the war on terror."
-Secretary of State Rice speaking to the American Legion in Salt Lake City, Utah

Meantime, in Iraq:
More than 10,000 Iraqis - the vast majority in Baghdad - have been killed in the past four months alone, a figure that would send shockwaves through the international community were it in any other part of the world.

Nine US Soldiers Dead in Two Days
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/082906K.shtml
At least 100 people were killed across Iraq yesterday in a day of intense gun battles and suicide bombings, contradicting US military claims that the security situation in the war-torn nation was improving. US forces have lost nine soldiers since Saturday, the military said in press releases, making it a lethal weekend for them as well. Eight of the soldiers were killed by roadside bomb attacks and one by gunfire, according to the brief military statements.

That's just crazy talk...unless you happen to know some history. Anyone care to guess what country the man came from who mixed the chemicals in the first World Trade Center attack?
