Casualties

The current death toll of American personnel in Iraq stands at 1,022. It seems just yesterday that we reached the 1,000 milestone. A visit to Iraq Casualty Count shows that 44 soldiers have been killed so far this month in Iraq, an average of over 3 a day. At this rate, by September 30th the casualty count for the month would reach 92 - the second highest monthly total of the entire war. Given the increase in coordinated attacks by the Iraqi insurgency in recent weeks, this total seems a depressingly achievable possibility.
