Some good news that I haven't seen anyone call attention to is that July just beat the record for fewest deaths of U.S. military in Iraq for a month period. That record had been set in May with 19 deaths, unless some last minute additions get tacked on the current number for July is 13. Just one year ago 80 people were killed in the same month. It really is getting fairly reasonable to expect that within two years Iraq won't be an issue. The relative calm has managed to hold up since last October. Afghanistan however has been getting worse so it may be the net effect isn't much of an improvement.
