War's Iraq Death Toll Exceeds 50,000

This is one reason why I take exception to those who say (in effect), but we've only lost 2,500 soldiers and that's not too much of a sacrific for democracy. First, that ignores the humanity of the Iraqi people.

Not only that, but ignoring those deaths is ignoring the reality of the war in the eyes of those who are living in the midst of it. Ignore that at your peril. Ignore that, and we'll be there for a long damn time.
