Coalition Fatalities in Iraq Meet May Milestone

The number of coalition fatalities for May so far is currently exactly equal to the number of coalition fatalities in April for the whole month. Moreover, the numbers break down the same way (46 hostile, 6 non-hostile).

On the other hand, 3 of the dead this month are not Americans, whereas all of the dead in April are Americans.

If we convert to a per mensem basis, the rate of death in May is ~ 60 hostile, 7-8 non-hostile fatalities.

I think that reports of the death of the insurgency are greatly exagerrated.

That is all.
