Bush says it's "hard to tell" if casualties will keep mounting in Iraq

(Fort Hood, Texas-AP) April 11, 2004 - President Bush says more American casualties may come in Iraq, but, "we're plenty tough."
Bush attended an Easter Sunday service at Fort Hood, Texas, a base that has lost at least nine service members in the past week of fighting.
After the service, Bush told reporters the US campaign in Iraq "is right" and will continue.
Almost 50 American soldiers and more than 550 Iraqis are dead in the violence that spread across the country last week. Bush called it "a tough week."
The president says it's "hard to tell" if such fighting will continue.
Bush met with 11 soldiers at a military hospital, awarding Purple Heart medals to 10 of them.
