Another 'Grim Milestone'

AP: "Four Marines killed; U.S. toll now 3,114." My prayers go out to the troops fighting for our freedom and the freedom of the people of Iraq. But do you think the media cares about these soldiers? Probably not, considering the picture that accompanies this story on the Houston Chronicle website:

The caption: "Iraqis gather in front of a hospital in Fallujah, 65 kilometers (40 miles) west of Baghdad, Iraq, Thursday, Feb. 8, 2007, to inspect a body of a young man that was killed in a U.S. army air raid on the nearby village of Zaidan. A U.S. airstrike Thursday killed 13 insurgents in a volatile area west of Baghdad, the military said, while local officials claim 45 civilians, including women and children, perished in the attack.
