No combat deaths in Iraq for December and this is the only place that boasts it?! Wow! Massive media are such wimps.

That will change real soon. No justice, no peace, you can thank Blackwater.

When has there ever been justice and peace, especially in the Middle East?

We'd have a string of months like this if we regained our sanity and abandoned this worse than useless neocon crusade.

Time to pullout and save America that 225 million dollars a day.

Wishful thinking Sarge, military sources estimate another two years to prepare the Iraq defense forces for securing their country against insurgents other than the US. The only way to get out is our Congress denying any further spending, and that is not likely to happen soon because it will be propagated by hawks as "not defending our interests in the region".

This jihad is going exactly as planned. Weaken the American economy, stretch out and wear down the troops deployed in the region, and turn more Muslims against "the infidels" threatening their cultural beliefs. This war is being fought by a volunteer military force against Islam fundamentalists, advantage to the Martyrs, which happen to be the home team.

Stop the military funding and you stop the war. (Just my opinion, of course)

They'll never stop the funding. Congress is owned by the Defense contractors.

Don't expect it. Some withdrawal will happen but a large quantity will remain in Iraq.

Do private contractor deaths count as US combat deaths? Or are those held in separate category?

Good . . . but we still have this . . .

"In December, the ministry said, 306 Iraqi civilians were killed and 1,137 were wounded; 13 Iraqi soldiers were killed and 32 were wounded. Also in December, 48 Iraqi police were killed and 119 were wounded."
06:15 PM on 01/01/2010
Iraqi deaths are irrelevant to the corporate MSM.
04:52 PM on 01/01/2010
Great news! Therefore there's no reason for a continued U.S. presence in Iraq and those troops should go home. Peace.

Well, it appears that the surge actually did work.

Ask the Iraqi soldiers, police and citizens (total of 350 or so killed in December + about 1,250 injured) if the surge worked.

Our soldiers are not in combat situations now, which is why the only 3 deaths reported were "non-combat" related.

Hmmm wondering why this wasn´t a headline story. Seems very important?

Does this mean the military occupation is winning their "hearts and minds"????

I read that, at least, half of US soldier deaths are from being blown up and, not in combat. They still died because of the war, combat or not.

Which is what it should have been all along. Not that I think anyone anywhere should have to die for politics.
