Good News--More American Troops Dying in Iraq
Unfortunately, the headline is true. The biggest danger the American Army has in Baghdad is not being relevant to the sectarian struggles between the Shiites and Sunnis? The fact that thirteen American troops have died in Baghdad over the last three days is a strong indication that somebody sees the American military as worth attacking. There's not much doubt now that the U. S. military is a player in Baghdad. The big question now is whether the military can achieve its objectives of diminishing or eliminating the sectarian bloodbath. Right now, there's no evidence that such is the case.
