Five US troops killed over the weekend

In a 24-hour period, according to Juan Cole, and none of them in Najaf (at least reported). Wouldn't it be ironic if the 1000th soldier died just as Bush started his convention speech, and the networks all put it in the crawl at the bottom of the screen as he was "speaking?" At least that would be one soldier who didn't die in vain. (Sorry. My use of bitter irony is getting a bit strong, even for my tastes.)
