War Death Toll

Oh, a storm is threatening
My very life today
If I don’t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I’m gonna fade away

War, children, its just a shot away
Its just a shot away…

In the week following President Obama’s major announcement of plans to transfer military priorities from Iraq to Afghanistan and Pakistan, and with his recent trip to Iraq, the mainstream US media has begun to discuss the war efforts as if things have been quiet of late. In fact, as mentioned in our battlefield report, in the past month, for the first time since 2002, Iraq did not reach the top 10 news stories in the US.

Considering the lack of coverage, we decided to track and present to you a blow-by-blow account of the ongoing war death toll from March 26th – April 6th.

As thousands of more troops prepare to enter the battlefield, things are about to get much worse, but for now, here’s what yet another week of war currently looks like:

Is Beverly Giesbrecht Still Alive?
In the video below, this Canadian woman says she’ll be beheaded on March 31st, but Taliban militants holding her then gave until April 5th to pay a ransom of $375,000. It is believed that the ransom was never paid.

    Aw, this was a really nice post. In thought I want to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and precise effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and on no account appear to get one thing done.

  5. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, awesome blog!

    recieve 4 emails with the same comment. There has to be an easy method you can remove me from
    that service? Appreciate it!

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog
    that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on
    the head. The problem is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard to set
    up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks
