Americans continue to die in Iraq...

With three US soldiers killed in Iraq on Monday and three more on Tuesday, the US death toll has risen to at least 2,978 - five more than the number killed in the September 11 attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

With the expected execution of Saddam Hussein within the next few weeks we are likely to see an upsurge in killing. And Bush is considering sending more troops into this mess. Anyone out there have a solution to this problem?
