Single Digits

I don't think I heard anyone in the media mention this, but last month was the fewest American Soldiers killed in Iraq since the beginning of the war. Down from a high of 137 deaths in Nov 2004, the number lost in March dropped to 9. The first time since the invasion that number was in single digits. We haven't had more than twenty deaths in a month since September so this isn't just a particularly good month. It is becoming more and more safe to say that the war in Iraq is over, and we won.

So much for all the Vietnam Analogies, we lost about 55 000 troops there and about 4500 in Iraq. Iraq never got even close to as bad as Vietnam
