From the BBC Hundreds killed in Iraq, says US US-led forces in Iraq have issued new casualty figures confirming that the country has seen the bloodiest period of fighting since Saddam Hussein fell. US Brig Gen Mark Kimmitt said about 70 coalition troops had been killed in Iraq since 1 April, while casualties among insurgents were 10 times as high. President George W Bush said things had improved after a "tough week" in Iraq. But US commanders have asked for two more brigades to deal with growing unrest, including a rise in abductions. Complete test: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3620109.stm Just another example of the liberal press ignoring the "good news" out of Iraq. For example nowhere in the article does it even mention how great business has improved for the undertakers in Iraq. Damn liberals.
