May 2007 US Deaths 3rd Highest Since War Start

The 127 US deaths in Iraq for May 2007 are surpassed only by April 2004 with 135 deaths and November 2004 with 137 deaths.

Whenever the US pulls out the Iraqis are going to go at it with each other to decide who gets to force which factions to submit. Equality is a foreign idea in Arab Muslim cultures. Most will submit and others will dominate. We are wasting lots of American lives to try to defend a myth and pretend otherwise.

You mean that the pre-9/11 wisdom that neo-cons applied in Israel's dealings with Arabs, namely, the idea that all Arabs respect is force, might have some validity to it? Too bad they seem to forget all about that concept when it came to getting the United States to attempt ushering in democracy in the Mideast.
