    War on terror death toll mirrors that of 9/11 - By Calvin Woodward, AP, Coos Bay World, OR
    A new study on the war dead and where they come from suggests that the notion of “rich man's war, poor man's fight” has become a little truer over time.

    Among the Americans killed in the Iraq war, 34 percent have come from communities reporting the lowest levels of family income. Half have come from middle income communities and only 17 percent from the highest income level.

    That's a change from World War II, when all income groups were represented about equally. In Korea, Vietnam and Iraq, the poor have made up a progressively larger share of casualties, by this analysis.
