Meanwhile, the number of people killed goes up

Ah, the daily totals. I think that in Vietnam, they were printing the news as ratios, "Gooks" v. GIs killed each day. That's a rather ugly way to debase human beings.


November became one of Iraq's bloodiest months as the U.S. death toll in the war in Iraq reached 1,214, according to figures released by the Defense Department.

On Wednesday, a suicide attacker drove his bomb-laden car into a U.S. convoy during fierce fighting in the town of Beiji, 155 miles north of the Baghdad, killing 10 people and wounding 12, including three American soldiers. Another attack on a convoy of civilian contractors in Beiji caused no casualties.

End of slice.
