    US troop casualties are achieving all time lows, as the surge, supported by the Republicans and President Bush, but either opposed or ignored by many major Democrats, has been working.

    Iraqi security forces, although growing in numbers, has also seen a dramatic decline, as have Iraqi citizens.

    CIties, that only two years ago, were deemed as unclaimable by coalition troops, have now been virtually ridden of Al Quiada.

    I suggest politely that you try to get both sides, or all three sides, etc, before you post pure propaganda venom. Thank you, citizen.

    You somehow fail to mention that we have made NO progress on the political front in Iraq, only killing numbers have gone down... slightly. Overall, given the current situation in Southern Iraq, armed conflicts between Sunni factions, continued suicide bombings and large scale firefights, you cant come close to saying the situation has improved. Over 4000 troops dead, minimum of 25 000 injured (estimates ranging up to 100 000). And if we elect Obama, Hillary, McCain :)lol:), Giuliani, Huckabee or Romney, that isnt' going to end anytime before 2013. Those are the facts. Your Fox News rubbish isn't worth the government propaganda it spouts on a daily basis. Not that CNN is much better.

    Yeah! It is about time but it sure wasnÂ’t worth it.

    By the way, major Democrats do acknowledge the surge:

    Carl Levin,

    Well I would like to know where you get your information?! I just returned from my 4th tour in Iraq and I will tell you that the situation in Iraq has improved 10 times since I was wounded in SEP of 2006. Are there a lot of problem, YES, but I can honestly say that things are better. Im just going to say that I believe things will continue to get better. The people of Iraq are sick of AQ and are also starting to force an end to the violence between different factions. I warn you and all Americans that we are on the right path and if we run now we will be in big trouble in 10 years. AQ is testing the American people right now. If we fail we will regret it 10 fold in the future.

    AQ's last stronghold left in Iraq is in Mosul. We have begun our offensive on that now. By early summer, AQ in Iraq will be a historic footnote.

    And don't worry, we will still be in Iraq in a sizable way when your grandchildren will be graduating from high school...

    actually the all-time low was february 2004.
    but why would accuracy mean anything to this troll?

    According to US News and World Report the death toll from sectarian violence in Basra in Dec was 2/3rd the death toll from gang violence in Los Angeles.

    Time for the National Guard to take up station in LA, I guess....

    Lowest since 2004, so what about the title "lowest death toll in years" is inaccurate? Who's the troll?
