More Dead and Wounded In Iraq

There is a very telling graphic in the NYTimes today. Body counts in a snazzy wrapper.

Check it out.


In the first two weeks of January, at least 202 people died as a result of the insurgency in Iraq. The killings have been indiscriminate. The dead include Iraqi officials, police officers, civilians and, of course, Iraqi, American and coalition soldiers. The attacks shown here took place across the country, but there is a clear concentration in the so-called Sunni Triangle, which stretches from Tikrit in the north to Baghdad in the east and to Falluja and Ramadi in the west.

End slice:

When will Bush realize the carnage has to stop and only he can give the command to pull our troops back to safety? The ROI is in a deep hole - about minus 12 Kelvin not worth it.
