I get my data from daily briefings, from reports from the field (friends and former students there), and other sources. I'm confident in them. This equates very well with the rates that we were killing "insurgents" in the Filipino Insurrection.

So what are the rates, i.e., the body count?

No one ever seems to consider what our present situation would be if we hadn't engaged Iraq and Hussein was still in power. It's hard for those who didn't live through Carter's 444 days of infamy to imagine the level of deep frustration and embarassment.
No-fly-zones, oil-for-food, Saddam blustering and taunting, and the rest of the whole sordid mess in a post-9/11 environment would simply be intolerable.
