The Smaller the Target... 

U.S., Iraqi civilian deaths fall sharply
BAGHDAD - Deaths among American forces and Iraqi civilians fell dramatically last month to their lowest levels in more than a year, according to figures compiled by the U.S. military, the Iraqi government and The Associated Press.


A total of 64 American forces died in September — the lowest monthly toll since July 2006.

The decline in Iraqi civilian deaths was even more dramatic, falling from 1,975 in August to at least 988 last month, a decline of 50 percent, according to an AP tally. The civilian death toll has not been so low since June 2006, when 847 Iraqis died.
Wow! ONLY 1054 human individuals died for NOTHING last month in Iraq.

Oh, incidentally, I hear that only a very few California Condors died last year, which is down sharply from the number that died in 1856. And absolutely no Dodo birds have died this millnium so far. Knock wood.
