31 Days in Iraq

New York Times : In January more than 800 people — soldiers, security officers and civilians — were killed as a result of the insurgency in Iraq.

While the daily toll is noted in the newspapers and on TV, it is hard for many Americans to see these isolated reports in a broader context.

The map, based on data from the American, British and Iraqi governments and news reports, shows the dates, locations and circumstances of deaths for the first month of the yearGiven the fog of war, the information may be incomplete. Nonetheless, it is our effort to visually depict the continuing human cost of the Iraq war.

Just think, if it weren't for the illegal invasion in the first place, those 800 people, or more, would still be alive today. Thanks to the "liberators".

My thoughts exactly TS seing all 800 on the graphic certainly brings home the tragedy of it all and of course this is just one month.
