Five More U.S. Troops Dead In Iraq In 2nd Deadliest Month of 2006

While Bush "pretends" to take more time to consider what to do in Iraq before the news media finally reports that he never disengaged from his existing plans to ship thousands of additional troops into Iraq to further worsen the situation there, five more U.S. soldiers have been killed there today, along with dozens of Iraqi civilians. This makes December the second deadliest month in 2006 for U.S. forces (for Iraq's civilians, every month is the deadliest).

Well, at least Bush had time to hit those after-Christmas sales.
