October deadliest month of ’06 for U.S. troops

From [CNN.com](http://www.cnn.com/?eref=rss_topstories:) “An international police liaison officer was killed and four soldiers were wounded late Sunday morning after their vehicle was struck by a roadside bomb in eastern Baghdad, a U.S. military statement released on Monday by Multi-National Corps-Iraq said.”

I have a nephew there. If he gets killed in all this nonsense, I’ll never forgive this administration. Historically, the US has been basically isolationist, and gotten involved in foreign countries only when ours was in jeopardy. What happened that made us project ourselves out into the rest of the world?
