War: Meanwhile, Over At The Other Success

Raw Story tells us that A a suicide car bomber blew himself up next to a convoy of Canadian troops in Kandahar yesterday. Toll? One civilian dead, two soldiers wounded.

A Humvee vehicle of the convoy was burned and destroyed.

Other important factoids for your perusal:
  • 160 suicide attacks and 68 thwarted attempts (2007);

  • 123 suicide attacks and 17 failed attempts (2006)

    Source for both sets of numbers: U.N. report released Monday 03/10/08 in New York. The report adds that insurgency-related violence has killed more than 8,000 people in Afghanistan in 2007. 1,500 of the dead were civilians.
Not that we're trying to piss on your parade or anything, but that's more than double the number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq so far, y'awl.

And, speaking of Iraq, Raw Story is reporting that three soldiers were killed in Iraq today, bringing the total number of U.S. troops killed since the beginning of this immoral and illegal war of occupation to 3,987. Only thirteen more to go, Dumbya, before you hit 4,000. You've already killed over 1,000 more Americans than Osama bin Laden. How does that feel?

Well, the depraved idiot seems to think it feels just fine. He's out there "reframing" the Iraq war as "forever" the right decision to make. What a putrid little bucket of puke. Makes us wish we believed in God just so we could imagine the nasty little bastard burning in Hell forever.
