USA Today seems worried about the release of figures showing that U.S. troops have killed over 19,000 "militants" since the beginning of the conflict. Although the paper has a graph labeling the deceased "enemy fighters", they start out their story by labeling the dead fighters "militants". Apparently, those guys were uber-militant. With the coverage USA Today usually provides readers, those figures probably seem shocking.
From USA TodayJust another item in what is turning out to be a 'bad news month' for Iraqi defeatmongers everywhere. The surge has shown results, MoveOn.org overplayed their weak hand and now, news of 19,000 dead Islamofascists. The Huffington Post minions must be weeping uncontrollably.
More than 19,000 militants have been killed in fighting with coalition forces since the insurgency began more than four years ago, according to military statistics released for the first time.
The statistics show that 4,882 militants were killed in clashes with coalition forces this year, a 25% increase over all of last year.
Like any good little MSM mouthpiece, USA Today is not going to let a little good news deter them from their turn-and-run mission. Accompanying the above story are pieces on "The Mental Toll" and "Defense Secretary Seeks $42 Billion". In case anyone misses the point that there can never really be any good news about Iraq, there's a video embedded in the story showing anti-war activists.
Numerous stories abound about Americans and their deficiency where mathematics are concerned. But almost all Americans can put two plus two together and arrive at four.
They can figure out that 19,000 dead "militants" over in Iraq means 19,000 less suitcase bombers, snipers and CAIR press releases over here.
19,000 dead terrorists and USA Today is worried. It may be time for other defeatist media trumpets to worry also.
