TWO AMERICANS WERE KILLED IN IRAQ ON SATURDAY.
THAT WAS SATURDAY. WE WENT TO THE TWITTER FEED OF HAGTRESS ALYSSA MILANO TO FIND OUT MORE BUT SHE HADN'T TWEETED ABOUT IT DESPITE TWEETING OVER 60 TIMES SINCE SATURDAY MORNING. SHE HAD TIME TO TWEET A VIDEO WHERE SHE USES HER 5 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER AS A PROP, SHE HAD TIME TO TWEET HER FRIENDSHIP WITH HUMAN TRASH FRANCIS FISHER (SONDRA LOCKE RIGHTLY BELIEVED FRANCIS AND CLINT EASTWOOD LIED ABOUT THE START OF THEIR AFFAIR AND THAT IT BEGAN TWO YEARS EARLIER THAN THE CLAIM -- LOCKE DIED OF CANCER, FISHER WENT ON TO BECOME A NOTHING AND NO TALENT -- LOCKE FOUGHT THE SYSTEM -- FISHER LIED FOR IT -- LOOK WHO ENDED UP ALYSSA' FRIEND), TWEET ABOUT HOW SHE WAS "LEAKED TO" -- ALYSSA, YOU PISS OR YOU ARE PISSED ON, THERE IS NO "LEAKED TO" -- WE REALIZE YOU'RE STUPID AND HAVE NO REAL EDUCATION BECAUSE YOU WERE 'TAUGHT' ON THE SET OF 'WHO'S THE BOSS?' BUT EVEN YOU SHOULD LEARN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE BY NOW.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, ALSSA SAID, "HUH?"
SHE THEN EXPLAINED SHE NEVER TWEETED ABOUT WAR ''BECAUSE I'M NOT SURE IT WOULD HELP ME BE POPULAR AND WHEN YOU'RE WHORING LIKE I DO YOU HAVE TO BE POPULAR. IT'S NOT LIKE I'M A WORKING ACTRESS, AFTER ALL. I HAVE A PODCAST, FOR GOD'S SAKE. THAT'S THE 2019 VERSION OF A CABARET SHOW YOU TAKE TO DES MOINES. THAT'S HOW DESPERATE I AM. THAT'S HOW PATHETIC I AM. DOES MY PLASTIC SURGERY LOOK BOTCHED? IS ONE BOOB STILL HIGHER, IS ONE EYE STILL SMALLER?"

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE: The Marine who died Saturday in Iraq while assisting the country’s security forces was identified as Gunnery Sgt. Scott A. Koppenhafer. He is survived by his wife and two children.
It is with great sadness that we share the news that Gunnery Sergeant Scott A. Koppenhafer was killed Saturday in Iraq.
He had earned the Bronze Star and Navy Marine Corps Commendation Medals as well as the Marine Special Operator of the Year, 2018.
Rest in Peace, Marine
RIP Gunnery Sgt. Scott A. Koppenhafer Marine killed in action in Iraq is ID’d by Pentagon
On behalf of the commander and the command, we offer our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and teammates of Gunnery Sgt. Scott A. Koppenhafer, 35, a critical skills operator with 2nd Marine Raider Battalion who suffered fatal wounds during combat operations Aug. 10.
My prayers are with the Koppenhafer family and the entire town of Mancos. A Marine, a husband and a father, Gunnery Sgt. Koppenhafer’s death is a painful one for our small community.
He graduated from Adams State College in 2005 with a B.S. in Business Marketing.
Koppenhafer is survived by his wife and two children.
“Our most sincere thoughts are with the family and teammates of Gunnery Sergeant Koppenhafer during this difficult time,” Capt. Kristin Tortorici with U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Special Operations Command said in a news release.
Annette Weston (WCTI, NEWS 12) adds:
His personal decorations include: two Bronze Star Medals with Combat Distinguishing Device, two Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals with Combat Distinguishing Device, one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, one Humanitarian Service Medal, two Combat Action Ribbons, four Good Conduct Medals, the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and six Sea Service Deployment Ribbons.
The death of Koppenhafer is sad and tragic. It will receive attention and it should. But it wasn't the only US death. Elizabeth McLaughlin and Abby Cruz (ABC NEWS) report, "A U.S. contractor was also killed in Saturday's attack, according to a U.S. official."
That death won't receive much attention unless it turns out (a) that the contractor was a veteran of the wars in Iraq and/or Afghanistan before becoming a contractor and (b) that fact becomes public.
They are the faceless, the military contractors. They are the ones the US government uses and misuses, the ones who keep the wars going and keep them going in semi-privacy.
