Gonna Party Like It's 1999 2000

Here it is, the latest "gleeful grim milestone" from the MSM in their fifth column action against Operation Iraqi Freedom. Look to see it on the front page of the DMR tomorrow.

However, some folks have their number.

The fact that the Iraqis just approved their constitution with a small fraction of the violence on election day compared to last January... that's NOT news. Nice round numbers and place value lessons for simpletons... now THAT's news.

Hey, hang on just a second... as a matter of fact, I seem to remember Bush - in the 2003 State of the Union Address - said that if we go into Iraq at 2,000 KIA, we have to strike out tents and bugout. Game over.

Just kidding...

Some useful perspective can be found here.

Update: Picked up the paper and there it was - "2,000th U.S. troop dies". Granted, it was at the very foot of the front page. Not only that, right above it was an AP report on Iraqi casualties - 30,000 so far. Sounds bad, no...? Only if you you're unaware of the casualty rate under Saddam.
