December emerged as possibly the safest month for U.S. forces in Iraq since the 2003 invasion and the least deadly for Iraqi civilians in the past 12 months, but, now here come the negative, overall 2007 was the bloodiest year of the war, according to figures released Monday. On the military front, 21 U.S. personnel died in December, according to Department of Defense figures released by the independent Web site icasualties.org, making the average death tally last month the lowest since the start of the war, but, now here comes the negative, at least 899 American Troops were killed during 2007, according to the Web site, the highest annual toll since the U.S. invasion in March 2003. After high monthly death tolls early in 2007, the number of civilians and U.S. soldiers and civilians slain has been decreasing since the U.S. military completed a troop buildup in June. But, now here comes the negative, few people were celebrating the recent down turn in violence, especially Democrats, as proof of irreversible progress. By Tina Susman, Los Angeles Times.
The rest of the 19 paragraphs and a thousand or more words are all negative. Tina, just like all the other liberal news people, don't report anything good that our soldiers are doing in Iraq, just how many of them die each month. In fact, in October of 2006 the month before the mid term elections, the new media let us know how many of our soldiers died each day. Have you ever seen a news report about the good things our troops are doing in Iraq? Wait, Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrats said this is a civil war and that we lost the Iraq war. So we should give up and bring our troops home. Where is this civil war? We are winning the war on terrorist in Iraq because of our troop buildup. Maybe also the terrorism has slow down because the Iraq war has not been in the news much since the U.S. is winning. You know the only way the terrorist can get their message out to the world is through the liberal U.S. media. How else would the world know what the terrorist are doing?
