The REAL News

Gateway Pundit has a great report up that you won't see in the Enemy Media:

** Violence in Iraq is down by 50%.
** Civilian casualties in Iraq are down by 60%.
** Baghdad casualties are down by 75%.
** Basra violence is down by 90%.
** Terrorist attacks in Iraq are down by 80%.
** IED attacks down by 55%.
** Average daily attacks down by 42%.

Stuff like this will just ruin Thanksgiving for the Democrats.

There are some interesting numbers here regarding military losses during the War on Terror and during the Clinton years. Check it out.

Thank you, American military!!

JASmius adds: That last graf merits a direct quote:
The US has lost 3,434 soldiers and marines in Iraq and 390 soldiers and marines in Afghanistan over the past five years. This total of 3,824 has [just] passed half of the number of soldiers lost during the Clinton years during peacetime (via Murdoc Online). [emphasis added]
If, of course, you count as part of "peacetime" Clinton's invasion of Haiti and his unprovoked attacks on Bosnia and Serbia - which were specifically tailored to minimize U.S. casualties rather than attain their avowed objectives. Indeed, his deliberate neglect of (and cultural war against) our armed forces has contributed to the manpower strains we've encountered in their current deployments in the Middle East, and is probably the overriding reason why we haven't been able to finish World War IV by crushing Iran and Syria as we should have years ago.

And what is his wife's overriding Pentagon (or, rather, Clintagon) priority when she takes over in thirteen months? The same as Mr. Bill's first overriding priority was almost fifteen years ago: sodomizing the military.

As I keep telling myself, you can't make this stuff up.

But oh, how I wish I was.

UPDATE: How about this for a Murdoc Online bumper sticker: "'Peace' kills".
