It's Worth Noting

Not much is being said about the Iraq war these days. It seems that when the deaths are way down, it's not worth noting. However, it should be. In the last five months the military deaths (combat and non-combat) have averaged at only about a single death every two days. There was a time, just last year, when some months saw an average of nearly 4 U.S. military deaths per day. In most months this year, the non-combat deaths are actually higher than those caused by hostile fire. Quite a change since the surge.

I just thought you should know.
