Yes, Fatalities are Down in Iraq this Month

So far, 31 hostile and 12 non-hostile fatalities for July (for the entire coalition, not counting Iraqis) (or 57 hostile and 22 non-hostile fatalities for the month if we assume a steady fatality rate - actually, the numbers could be lower than that if the relatively low death rate of the past few days prevails).

This is down from the highs of the past three months, and if the predicted data is correct will be the lowest hostile death toll since July of last year.

On the other hand, July tends to be a lower fatality month compared to the ones surrounding it.

Nonetheless, this is good news, even though it is likely temporary.

That is all.
