20 U.S. service members killed in Iraq

Who's crying now?'s sooooo sad to hear this over and over again. What's the public's appetite to go the long haul? We agree with Hillary - send more troops to Afghanistan, get them out of Iraq.

Speaking of failed military excursions / political careers, we also noticed the domain name for sale on eBay for $25K. Can't wait to see who snaps it up.

At least 20 American service personnel were killed in military operations Saturday in one of the deadliest Iraq war began, and authorities also announced two U.S. combat deaths from the previous day.

The day's worst loss came from the crash of a U.S. Army helicopter northeast of Baghdad that killed 13 service members. An attack Saturday night blamed on militiamen in the city of Karbala killed five soldiers. Roadside bombs killed another soldier in the capital and one in Nineveh province north of Baghdad.

The military gave little information on the crash of the Black Hawk during good weather in Diyala province, where U.S. and Iraqi forces have been battling Sunni insurgents and Shiite militias around the city of Baqouba for months. Yahoo
