From the Iraq Body Count website. Sixty four dead civilians on Sunday Sept. 16, 2007.
Baghdad: American security contractors shoot dead 9 Iraqi civilians, Nisoor Square; car bomb kills 5, Mansour; roadside bombs kill 3, Zayuna, Mamoun, Harthiya; mortars kill 2, near Shaab stadium; gunmen kill members of Municipality of Bayaa and Municipality of Doura; 12 bodies.So far this month, an average of 2.35 soldiers are being killed each day. So far 3781 American soldiers killed. How is that for a "small price to pay"?
Tuz Khurmato: suicide bomber kills 8 at cafe.
Muqdadiya: gunmen attack two villages and kill 14, including 3 children.
Baquba: 6-year-old boy killed by sniper fire.
Diwaniya: 12-year-old son and elderly father of Mahdi army leader killed during US/Iraqi raid on their house.
Hilla: bodies of traffic policeman and his 16-year-old son found tortured.
For the next 9 months of the continued surge we can expect 635 American deaths and an expenditure of $300/day. Heck of a job George.
