    Can't really say that I'm surprised. It's sad, and I'm sure frustrating to those who fought there back in 04/05.

    Yeah, it certainly isn't just Iraq it's happening in. Just thought it was sad given how well-known that battle is.

    That's sad. I wonder if it will ever stop. Probably not.

    I am not shocked at all by this, but I am deeply saddened by it. I know many friends/family right now that are thinking "what a waste" as well.
