The figure includes seven military civilians. At least 2,633 died as a result of hostile action, according to the military's numbers.

US Troop Deaths Up 21 Percent in Iraq

Iraqi civilian deaths have fallen in Baghdad in the two months since the Feb. 14 start of the U.S.-led offensive, according to an Associated Press tally. Outside the capital, civilian deaths are up as Sunni and Shiite extremists shift their operations to avoid the crackdown.

And the sweeps have taken a heavy toll on U.S. forces: Deaths among American soldiers climbed 21 percent in Baghdad compared with the previous two months.


Our official death count is over 3,300 now.

And this is just the American deaths they count. There are also American deaths they don't count, forget figures on Iraqi deaths, deaths of people from other 'willing' countries.

And then there are all the injuries--to our military persons, military from 'willing' countries, Iraqis.

And the uncounted pain in families of all involved.

Yet all we are asked to do is 'go shopping'.

Yes, this is a terribly sad thread.

BAGHDAD - A suicide bomber struck a crowd of funeral mourners Monday north of Baghdad, taking more than 30 lives at the end of one of the deadliest months of the war so far for U.S. forces. At least 104 American troops were reported killed in April.

The rising toll among Americans pointed to a potentially deadly trend: More troops exposed to more dangers as they try to reclaim control of Baghdad under the joint security plan being implemented by U.S. and Iraqi forces.


And it is expected it will get worse...
