2,000 soldiers haven't really died in Iraq
That's what Michelle Malkin seems to think, anyway; she says that the 2,000 mark is "bogus."
UPDATE: Chris Bowers agrees that the 2000 number shouldn't be focused on, but for different reasons -
Iraq Body Count currently records the number of Iraqi civilian fatalities as at least 26,690, and as many as 30,051.
As of this writing, at least 3,450 Iraqi security forces have been killed since the start of the insurgency.
In addition to Iraqi and American fatalities, coalition forces in Iraq have suffered at least 199 fatalities, including 97 from Britain.
Further, as of this writing, at least 272 contractors have been killed in Iraq.
Finally, lest we forget, at least 58 journalists have also been killed in Iraq.
