Ever since 2007 I have been saying that each year will be the worst yet in casualties. Unfortunately it has been true each year. As the enemies of our nation continued to get beat down in Iraq and as madrassas in Pakistan continued to churn out more and more brainwashed radicals to lay their lives down against us the fight got worse every year since 2006.
Now here we are are only the 9th month of 2010 and it is already the deadliest year ever in 2010 for coalition forces.
After only nine months, 2010 has now become the deadliest year of the long war, with the extra deployment of international forces to nearly 150,000 drawing more battlefield engagements and leading to a spike in casualties.
Of course with many more targets on the battlefield for our enemies to shoot at and try to blow up, it should be no surprise that we have suffered so many casualties this year. As of the helicopter crash that killed nine soldiers today, we have now lost 529 coalition force members
