Remember the SURGE that would finally win the war against whoever it is we're fighting in Iraq for some unknown reason? Well, it's a big success -- if by "success" you mean U.S. troops are now dying at the fastest rate since the invasion four years ago!
October 2006-March 2007 were the deadliest six months of the war so far, while March also "marked the first time that the U.S. military suffered four straight months of 80 or more fatalities." April is on its way to being the single deadliest month of the entire invasion and occupation.
Also, more people are shot, beheaded and blown up every single day in Iraq than were shot at Virginia Tech yesterday in the "deadliest shooting rampage in American history."
