The Surge Is Working

More news you won't see in the mainstream media:

Baghdad security crackdown seriously curbs killings of US soldiers

BAGHDAD, March 14 (KUNA) -- The rate of killings of US troops in Iraq has been on the decline, down by 60 percent, since the launch of the new security measures in Baghdad, according to statistics revealed by the Multi-National Force -Iraq Combined Press Information Centre.

Only 17 members of the US military in Iraq have been killed since February 14 till March 13, compared to 42 from January 13 to February 13; the rate was on the decline during the first month of the security crackdown, compared to a month before.

Two of the 17 soldiers died at US Baghdad camps of non-combat causes.

The remarkable decrease in killings among the US troops came at a time when more of these troops were deployed in the Iraqi capital, especially in districts previously regarded as extremely hazardous for them such as Al-Sadr City, Al-Azamiyah, and Al-Doura.

The decrease in killings among the U.S. Troops is wonderful news and why we don't get more of this type of news is quite obvious...the left, of course. If it's good, it's ignored. If it's bad it's a major broadcast for tv and juicy trash for the newspapers.

After four years of U.S. military deaths, it is refreshing to know the numbers are decreasing. As noted, the mainstream media will not report this.

My wish is that no more military men and women will be killed in this war. Four years is a long time so maybe the end is near.

Hash, what an insane remark about Capitalist Infidel, I do not believe that I've read anything at all which would lead me to believe that he is a warmonger. Quite the contrary I find him to be one of the most patriotic bloggers I've ever read. And there you go again, demeaning a woman, is this a fantasy you have, degrading women, boy you are warped. Go get a brain.
