As of Tuesday, June 1, 2010, at least 4,400 members of the U.S. military had died in the Iraq war since it began in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.

The figure includes nine military civilians killed in action. At least 3,486 military personnel died as a result of hostile action, according to the military's numbers.

The AP count is four fewer than the Defense Department's tally, last updated Tuesday at 10 a.m. EDT.

Since the start of U.S. military operations in Iraq, 31,827 U.S. service members have been wounded in hostile action, according to the Defense Department's weekly tally.

What can one say. I hate see such large number in loss of life but they made their choice to go without good reason behind it. That's really too bad.

Wow. I'd also be very interested in seeing the REAL number of deaths of civillians on the other side. I'm sure they are much, much higher.
