137 highest, 19 lowest. hardly losing the war.
as of june 2007 we had 166,000 troops currently occuping iraq. the total death count is 3,729.and that's since the war started.
c'mon, we are winning. media is one hell of a magician, don't be fooled by the trickery.
there will be peace in iraq and the middle east, it's gonna take a lot of time and death to relieve the situation though.
if you were a powerful person in that region, would you want to abide to new laws that cost you money? all for the welfare of some people you don't truely care about? probably not. so it would cost you less to fight the new laws than accept them.
