Who Will Celebrate the Deaths of 2000 Americans?

In a few weeks the total number of deaths of American soldiers in Iraq will reach 2000. As we sit here, you can be sure that the front-page splashes are already being written. What happened when the number reached 1900?

American deaths in Iraq hit 1,900 as 12 more die

BAGHDAD - U.S. officials reported Tuesday that 12 more Americans were killed in Iraq - eight of them members of the armed forces, raising to more than 1,900 the number of U.S. service members who have died in the country since the invasion.

U.S. Military Deaths Top 1,900 in Iraq

The war in Iraq passed a sobering milepost Tuesday when U.S. officials reported 12 more Americans were killed — eight of them members of the armed forces, raising to more than 1,900 the number of U.S. service members who have died in the country since the invasion.

Military: Troop Deaths in Iraq Pass 1,900

BAGHDAD, Iraq -- The U.S. military said Tuesday that four U.S. soldiers died in two roadside bombings near the insurgent stronghold of Ramadi and a fifth died in a blast north of Baghdad, pushing the toll of American forces killed in Iraq past 1,900.

Just as CMAR II anticipated the febrile charges of fraud around the Iraqi constitutional referendum, I urge you to watch the behavior of the MSM when the number reaches 2000.

Will those who are animated by a deep-seated hatred for the current administration "celebrate" those deaths? I doubt that they will be happy about the deaths themselves, but there is no question that many of them are more interested is using the figure as one more club to smack over the head of Bushitler.

I heard somewhere that Sean Penn and the other members of the "Hollywood Think Tank" have already made plans for this event.
