Four U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq attack
The anti-tank mine, he said, appeared to have been altered to add the maximum amount of shrapnel
The deaths bring the total number of American troops killed in Iraq this month to 41.
Man, it's only the 10th of August and our boys are getting mowwed down with no end in sight. This is military planning at it's best. Just a poor group of sitting ducks , but we're gonna stay the course no matter who or how many have to die for our POS leader.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOtab0BKOGY

It is so sad that these soldiers pay the ultimate price while the rest of America thinks that they've done their part by attaching a magnetic sticker to the back of their SUV.

POS = Piece of Poopoo
I hate to say it, but as sad as it may be to see young men dying...it's a war, only a fool would NOT expect some of our own to get killed.

Yeah, they've done their part, MTA. The majority of them raised sons and daughters now serving in the Gulf, Afghanistan and around the globe.

I wouldn't say the 'majority' of them did. As a result of the all-volunteer Army, the dirty little reality is that the majority of the military comes from the lowest economic sectors of America. They have paid the price. Most of the middle-class and almost all of the wealthy have made no sacrifice.Conservatives: "If the facts disagree with our opinion, ignore the facts -- or at least misrepresent them."

Care to back that up with links to enlisted/officer demographics? The military rejects voluntary candidates daily. This is not a draft situation like in Vietnam where warm bodies are needed to fill the infantry grunt ranks. Those already serving don't want them in their units anyways.
