    Pentagon: Cold-blooded carnage soaring in Iraq

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/...ain/index.html
    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Death squads and terrorists have ramped up attacks on civilians in Iraq, killing more than 1,600 people in cold-blooded "execution-style" slayings in July alone, a Pentagon report said Friday.

    Increasing violence is affecting "all other measures of stability, reconstruction and transition," according to the report, which examined the situation in June, July and August.
    Bush told an audience at the American Legion convention in Salt Lake City, Utah, that the effort was akin to World War II and the Cold War and warned that failure to persevere will lead terrorists to take their battle to U.S. shores.
    Many Democrats have disputed Bush's view that the Iraq war is essential to the fight against terrorism. In a statement, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada called for "beginning the redeployment of troops from Iraq, refocusing our efforts on the war on terror and protecting Americans from terrorism here at home."
    Where is the liberal Pentagon's report on all the positive things happening in Iraq?

    IT IS SO GOOD TO BE BACK HOME.

    The report said the quarter had seen a 51 percent increase in Iraqi casualties and a 15 percent increase in the number of attacks.
    This is what winning looks like

    But the report concluded the "current violence is not a civil war, and movement toward civil war can be prevented."
    some good news
