The 2000th Dead Coalition Soldier (not all 2000 are Americans either) is no more or less important than the 746th or th 1295th or the 1999th Soldier. What is important is that voter turnout for the election of a constitution in Iraq was higher than expected, even among the Sunis! even the ones who voted against the constitution were still practicing being a part of a democracy where everyone has a voice. We are winning the war. It is not over yet. We are not ready to leave, and they are not ready for us to leave. that day will come, but not now, and probably not soon.
