According to this graph, Iraqi civilian deaths are at about 1600/month ... which means that this small country is rivaling the drug deaths in our very large country.

... just for the sake of keeping a perspective.

Iraq & particularly Baghdad is a war zone, what do you expect? What is your point? Go see 3082 for what war deaths look like in perspective of recent memory. Lou Dobbs, a liberal member of the MSM, was making the point that there are other so-called "wars" that are being conducted that have a lot more death associated with them. Or if you are really concerned about deaths look at this or this for more death statistics & work on some of their causes.
 google us mortality from all causes

Sorry about that google link. Apparently if you actually type in the US mortality from all causes  without the quotation marks yourself it works nicely.

For perspective I also suggest the Drudge Headline for today:
16,185 MURDERS; 92,837 RAPES A YEAR IN USA...

source: ...

A drop in violence around Iraq has cut burials in the huge Wadi al Salam cemetery here by at least one-third in the past six months, and that's cut the pay of thousands of workers who make their living digging graves, washing corpses or selling burial shrouds.


... poor grave diggers..  more bad news for the Iraqis.
