Five dead Marines in Iraq

George Bush believes he rules by Divine Guidance. He may have got some today, since the answer from the Almighty to his speechifying and Cheney's talking head assertions that the War in Iraq is (once again) being won, is this:

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Five U.S. Marines were killed by a roadside bomb in western Iraq, the military said Friday.

The Marines were killed Thursday while conducting combat operations near the volatile Anbar province town of Haqlaniyah, 90 miles northwest of Baghdad.

The Marines were assigned to the 2nd Marine Division's Regimental Combat Team 2. Their identities were not released.

At least 1,689 U.S. military members have died since the Iraq war began in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
