Sadly, it was only a matter of time before the number of U.S. military fatalities in Iraq reached 3,000. That time is now. December of 2006 has been the bloodiest month for the U.S. in more than two years. It is difficult to believe that a surge in the number of troops will result in anything more than a surge in the number of dead and wounded. May the new year soon find the brave young men and women serving in Iraq home at last.
