Some obvious information but I'm wonder -

"To be fair to Israel, most of the credit goes to Ariel Sharon, the giant vegetable, and like Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, etc.. a prime example of how psychopaths can sometimes rise to power."

- what does it mean ?

From your point of view it means that Ariel Szaron is a psychopaths ?

Why ?

U.S. officials exclude car bombs in touting drop in Iraq violence

WASHINGTON - U.S. officials who say there has been a dramatic drop in sectarian violence in Iraq since President Bush began sending more American troops into Baghdad aren't counting one of the main killers of Iraqi civilians.

Car bombs and other explosive devices have killed thousands of Iraqis in the past three years, but the administration doesn't include them in the casualty counts it has been citing as evidence that the surge of additional U.S. forces is beginning to defuse tensions between Shiite and Sunni Muslims.

President Bush explained why in a television interview on Tuesday. "If the standard of success is no car bombings or suicide bombings, we have just handed those who commit suicide bombings a huge victory," he told TV interviewer Charlie Rose.

...

so, there it is, for the Buschistas to offer a true picture, they must admit the insurgents have won, "a huge victory"

no, the surge is not working --- but, apparently, the insurgency is working -

Bush administration officials have pointed to a dramatic decline in one category of deaths - the bodies dumped daily in Baghdad streets, which officials call sectarian murders - as evidence that the security plan is working. Bush said this week that that number had declined by 50 percent, a number confirmed by statistics compiled by McClatchy Newspapers.

But the number of people killed in explosive attacks is rising, the same statistics show - up from 323 in March, the first full month of the security plan, to 365 through April 24.

Overall, statistics indicate that the number of violent deaths has declined significantly since December, when 1,391 people died in Baghdad, either executed and found dead on the street or killed by bomb blasts. That number was 796 in March and 691 through April 24.

Nearly all of that decline, however, can be attributed to a drop in executions, most of which were blamed on Shiite Muslim militias aligned with the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Much of the decline occurred before the security plan began on Feb. 15, and since then radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr has ordered his Mahdi Army militia to stand down.

WASHINGTON (IPS) - The Bush administration and proponents of the U.S. troop surge in Iraq have claimed that the increased military presence in Baghdad and al-Anbar province has reduced sectarian violence between Sunni and Shiite Muslims and lowered civilian casualties. But not all of the numbers are being included.

It has emerged that the Bush administration does not count car bombing victims among Iraq's civilian casualties and the Iraqi government is withholding from the United Nations its statistics on Iraqi casualties.

when the number of manufacturing jobs in America had suffered a dramatic drop, the Buschistas tried to start calling making hamburgers as a manufacturing job --- these guys don't care about the truth, only what kind of angle they can find

it gets difficult when their own top commander admits what liars they are

WASHINGTON - Army Gen. David Petraeus, the top commander in Iraq, said Thursday that the surge of U.S. and Iraqi troops into Baghdad hadn't reduced overall violence in the country and that the situation was "exceedingly complex."

Wow, the figures sure are going down...500 less this month than last...

....Month isn't over....as of April 28th there have been over 1550 killed ...

In other words, the months fluctuate but the death toll remains fairly constant

so more of the same?

meanwhile, US casualties are worse than they were that April, 4 years ago when Bush decided to play jet cowboy and land on an aircraft carrier --- hmmm tomorrow is the anniversary of that declaration, 'Mission Accomplished'

now there is not even a single defender of, 'Mission Accomplished' -- now the bogus defense claim is, "surge is working' --- and they have to admit, even that is not true

and now they should be looking for volunteers, 'Who wants to be the last man to die in Bagdad?' -- show of hands?? of coures, this means those among you who still have them

If the surge was to really work, and if it was a solid plan, then 100,100 troops would have been sent in to finish the war once and for all. 32,000 troops will not quell the violence in Iraq.

And since they cannot get 100,000 troops, (recruiting is low) this surge will not help overall one bit at all.
