Why are U.S. troops so hard to kill?

In tending toward an answer, Strategy Page’s short essay packs in some interesting facts. You might want to glance at this (same site) on how we are terrorizing the Taliban. I also liked this short note on the kind of motorcycles the Marines use in Iraq.

The first article is a good look at the numbers. I knew previous wars had taken a larger toll, obviously, but I didn't know the breakdown of numbers like that.

"Yankee magic." Now that's good stuff. Keep that magic comin', boys. Keep it comin'.

Maybe someday you will own a "Marine motorcycle." Actually, on second thought, I don't think you could handle it.
