The 3,000 mark
This morning at The Third Estate Sunday Review, we wrote "Editorial: The 3,000 mark looms." The 3,000 mark no longer looms, it has been passed.
The illegal war of choice, built on lies, is now responsible for over 3,000 US troops dead (over because those who die from wounds after they leave Iraq are not included in the count) and over 655,000 Iraqis. How many more?
You can check many sites for demonstrations you can take part in. As most people know, United for Peace and Justice is an organization I support so I'd recommend you check that. But whatever organization is your first pick, please make a point to note the milestone. You can also read C.I.'s "And the war drags on" for more information. Whatever you do, you need to "do," not just sit around waiting for the war to end.
