Default Iraqi death toll down by half...

Quote:
Iraqi deaths fall by 50 percent
By STEVEN R. HURST
Associated Press Writer
2 minutes ago


BAGHDAD - The number of American troops and Iraqi civilians killed in the war fell in September to levels not seen in more than a year. The U.S. military said the lower count was at least partly a result of new strategies and 30,000 additional U.S. forces deployed this year.

Although it is difficult to draw conclusions from a single month's tally, the figures could suggest U.S.-led forces are making headway against extremist factions and disrupting their ability to strike back.

The U.S. military toll for September was 64, the lowest since July 2006, according to figures compiled by The Associated Press from death announcements by the American command and Pentagon.

More dramatic, however, was the decline in Iraqi civilian, police and military deaths. The figure was 988 in September 50 percent lower than the previous month and the lowest tally since June 2006, when 847 Iraqis died.
Well how about that. I guess the surge worked. I guess Petraeus was dead on in his analysis on The Hill a couple of weeks ago.

And I fucking LOVE how the articles Yahoo posts on it's main page usually are nothing but manifestos of hatred for George Bush...so when this comes down they have to work in

"...it's difficult to draw conclusions from a single month tally but it could suggest that US led forces are making headway..."



In all honesty, this is one of the first times in over a year I've clicked on a non sports news post on Yahoo's front page. They should really change their domain to www.commieswhohaterepublicans.com.

Anyway, discuss the success of the troop surge.

Late.

I'll be honest, I am. If the draft comes back and i'm called, look for me in Canada.

I just don't see why THAT would make me a pussy. I like it when we're not in a war. I am a pacifist, it's how we roll.

I don't imagine there's too many people who "like" being at war.

Seriously...you didn't grow a brain while you were lurking?

because of the "unnecassarily" comment

No one likes war.
We wouldn't be there if it wasn't necessary.

Its unfortunate that people are dying.....but its unfortunate part of war

Yes, I don't imagine many people like it, that's not what I am saying. I just don't see why this particular war was necessary. I can understand WWII or anything before that, but why did we go to Iraq? We were told WMDs, we found none.

You know what I do when I go to Wal-Mart and they don't have what i'm looking for, I go home.

That is probably true, but I just don't think we should've went there. Now that we're there, we're pretty fucked either way. Stay and get a bunch of Americans killed, leave and lose the country. It is the definition of a catch 22, and since nothing about that is going to change any time soon, we might as well just let the inevitable happen. Even if we're still there in 40 years, Iran will still be there to take it away once we leave. It's not gonna improve, so we might as well just let the shit go where it may. Unless of course we invade Iran soon and take out Ahmadinejad, but that would probably make the problem bigger in the long run, because for every 1 moron there, there's 10 more that want to do the same thing.

I would have just liked to have avoided the whole situation from the beginning.

Yes. I think we're fucked either way, people are gonna die either way, so we might as well not waste resources there.

I'm positive all that money could've been used for something nice over here.

You're statement that you like it when we're not at war implies that those who don't agree with you do. That's so clear that a 12 year old can see it. And you meant it that way. If you didn't mean it, you wouldn't have said it. Own it...don't fucking run away from your own opinion.

But you don't see why this war was necessary. Riiiiight, right...I mean...we found just about everything you could need to build chemical weapons...but just no chemical weapons that were already assembled.

Seriously...for the first six months that was all over the news..."Coalition Forces found possible components to biological and chemical weapons, but nothing complete."

So the war wasn't necessary because they hadn't finished building the Weapons Of Mass Destruction yet??

Give me a fucking break with that shit.

You don't see why this war is necessary...bitch you can't see shit. The fuck on out of here with your weak ass bullshit.

Late.

Wow. Why don't we just call this forum "Meeting Of The Conservatives"

Just sayin, every other forum is named for what it is.

And what the hell do I care if Iraq has chemical weapons, we have the most nukes in the world.

You're such an ignorant tool. If you actually even half way believe what you just typed, then you're a complete and utter moron.

MotM has resorted to name calling now? If I knew this forum was basically a politcal WZ, i'd have never posted. I thought this was the place for political conversation, I voice my opinion and you and Kurt just blast it. What is the point of this forum if everyone has to agree with you two or get blasted. I don't care if you think i'm wrong, that's fine, but what you just said isn't even discussion, it's just 4th grade name calling.

Sorry I bugged you by disagreeing.
