When it comes to the important matter of US military casualties in Iraq, it really does matter how you look at the data. Any death is at all is a tragedy, but you don’t get a workable understanding of a situation by saying, “It’s getting worse and worse!” when it is manifestly coming under control.
The Commissar has posted two graphs showing American military casualties since the beginning of the war in Iraq. I would like you to view both and make up your mind which best represents how our soldiers are doing.
On the other hand, the “glass is half empty” crowd should probably skip that link and find some bad news to rejoice in.
