The Surge is working (redux)

What to do when troop death statistics out of the Iraq misadventure aren't going your way?

Why, you just add the insurgent (and probably more than a few civilian) deaths, define them all as "terrorists", and Bob's yer uncle, lookee here -- that's better!

I wonder what the chart would look like with some big red bars added for the civilian deaths. One thing is certain: it would need to be a lot taller.

M'kay, that was fun. Now can you bring home those troops not on the chart?
