The inevitable milestone

WASHINGTON – Now the death toll is 9/11 times two. U.S. military deaths from Iraq and Afghanistan now match those of the most devastating terrorist attack in America’s history, the trigger for what came next. Add casualties from chasing terrorists elsewhere in the world, and the total has passed the Sept. 11 figure.

Story. Of course, if we step outside of our America-centric bubble and add in the Iraqis who have died in this thing, I don’t know how many 9/11’s we’re up to at this point.
